Pink Terra Cotta Bottle Vase


by Bloomist

Hand-thrown on the wheel by potter Peter Sheldon, this tall bottle-shape vase is made of terra cotta clay and custom porcelain slip. The high iron content in terra cotta gives the clay a rich orange/pink hue when fired, and the layering of slip brushed on terra cotta creates an antiqued, milky surface. Slight variations occur in hand-thrown pottery, making every piece unique. A stamped number on the bottom indicates the type of clay used.
