Oops… another pot that I bought at Kindrogan. Normally I only show one image for this series of posts, but each side of this squared pot is unique, and highlights the fascinating process that Patricia uses to create her beautiful work. She lives on the Isle of Skye – one of my favorite places on this earth – and is strongly influenced by its imposing landscape. This particular piece is thrown on a wheel, then wire cut and stretched to create the rugged texture. It was then wood fired to 1260°C with soda, and has a lithium flux glaze inner.
