The fine grained stoneware clay body of this piece has wheel thrown cylinders inside to create volume, on top of a coarse clay base. Pushing the clay from within creates a voluminous form and stretches the structure. An alkaline frit-based copper oxide Egyptian blue glaze, with darker parts also containing cobalt carbonate, creates the vibrant turquoise. The low viscosity of the glaze clearly reveals all the details in the body underneath.
