Chelsea Coastal Texture Lidded Box with Gold Nugget

90.00

This unique creamy white coastal inspired low round lidded box is both decorative and functional. Each piece is handmade separately in the artist's studio. It is inspired by coral textures discovered along the shore during Tavill's seaside travels.  She throws sandy stoneware clay on the pottery wheel, alters the form and later creates the gallery, lid and nugget. Porcelain slip is added to create a white skin and then she hand textures the surface with various tools. Texture and a signature stamp is impressed into the recessed foot upon completion during the greenware stage. The first firing secures the carving and texture and then Tavill coats the interior with clear glaze and delicately sprinkles portions of the exterior texture with the same clear glaze, creating a subtle glisten upon observation. The glaze firing takes the kiln to over 2185 degrees as the clay is fully vitrified (no longer porous). After cooling, Tavill applies a 22 kt gold luster to the nugget knob and the interior dot and the piece is fired again for the good luster to be adhered.

Please be advised, gold luster is delicate and should be treated as such.

Dimensions: 4 3/4″ H x 4 3/8″W
