Totem Hairpin vessel, large black stoneware with ash finish #2

This vessel was hand build using coiled clay and then put through an atmospheric smoke firing to obtain it's surface design and patina.  The exterior is coated with a lowfire glaze.  The interior is raw stoneware, which is not glazed due to the low temperature firing.  Therefore the vessel should be used as a stand alone sculpture only.  It's approximately 13 inches tall and 10 inches wide at it's widest.  (please note the sculptural clay is too porous to hold water).
