Miki Coral Collage Round Box

115.00

This one of a kind creamy white coastal inspired low round lidded box is both decorative and functional. It is inspired by the various patterns textures and movement discovered along the shore during Tavill's seaside travels. Its coral-like texture is handmade through a series of creative processes in the artist's ceramic studio. The artist throws sandy stoneware clay on the pottery wheel, alters the form and later carves and designs the pattern. Porcelain  slip is added to create a white skin and then she hand textures the surface with various tools. A signature stamp is impressed into the recessed foot upon completion during the  greenware stage. The piece is substantial in weight due to the necessity for thickness to achieve such texture. The first firing secures the carving and texture and then Tavill coats the interior (and the recessed foot portion) with clear glaze and delicately sprinkles portions of the exterior texture with the same clear glaze, creating a subtle glisten upon observation. Clear GLASS FRIT is melted into the top of the knob for a special touch. The final firing takes the kiln to over 2185 degrees as the clay is fully vitrified (no longer porous).

Dimensions: 4″ H x 3.75″W
