Item: POND

This is a contemporary design.  It features a fully pierced pond life design with things one might find in a pond.  A frog, some dragonflies, some flowers, and cat tails.  The design is fully pierced.  The colors were added with colored clay slips.  The black was tinted with a mineral colorant, the other colors are the natural color of the clay.  This pot was NOT burnished but was finished off after firing with a wax finish to protect the pot from getting soiled.  It was highlighted with antique gold guilders paste, an additional colored wax product, to emphasize the edges of the design and to give it a somewhat aged appearance and a bit of a golden hue.

It was hand formed from native clay using the coiling method.  The design was carved and the spaces between removed.  The colors were added with colored slips.  The black is a slip that a mineral color was added to the rest are the natural color of the clay.  This pot was fired in an electric kiln.

Size: 9.5 inches tall by 5.5 inches across.
