Laurel Coral Texture Box w/Gold Nugget Medium

90.00

This one of a kind creamy white coastal inspired low round lidded box is both decorative and functional. It is inspired by coral textures iscovered along the shore during Tavill's seaside travels. The artist 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 5/8″ H x 4 3/8″W
