figurative vessel, in black stoneware clay, black velvet raku #1

This hand build, coiled, figurative vessel can be used as a vase for dried flowers or a tiny branch because the interior is hollow, or it can be used as a stand alone sculpture.  The exterior is raku fired stoneware clay, and the inside is not glazed so it can not hold water.  It's approximately 7 inches tall and 4 inches thick at it's widest.  No electricity, and very few tools were used during the building of this object. For the first firing of the ceramics, kilns are electric and fired using solar panels.  The second firing is raku.  I do my best to find and reuse as many shipping materials as I can in my community to insure that your item arrives safely and with as little newly purchased plastic as possible. (please note the sculptural clay is too porous to hold water)
