This vase was fired in our wood-fired kiln during the last firing. It was up front where it got some heavy ash and flame. The finish - some blue clay from Ohio that a customer brought me - was brushed on thinly in two coats. There was so much happening on this pot that I thought I'd try to film it rather than take pictures. The front of the pot where it faced the firebox is quite glossy. The opposite side is a satin finish.
If you've got the bandwidth, I'd suggest watching it in a higher resolution by clicking on the play button and then changing the "240p" setting to at least "480." Or try 720HD and then click the lower right icon for full screen mode. Let me know what you think.
