Black Pottery Handled Vase
Made from terracotta clay, the Limited Edition Black Pottery Collection is thrown by a single European artisan on an original potter’s wheel. Each item is a unique piece of art and will vary due to the handcrafted technique used to create them. The ceramic pieces boast a unique smoke color thanks to the high content of red iron-oxide, which when fired changes color, varying from smokey grey to black. During the process the wood-fired furnace is kept closed and the smoke further contributes to the dark color of the ceramics. Because of the unique way these items are layered in the furnace, you can see spots where the items were touching one another. Only 100 of each style were made, creating this limited collection of pottery. Prior to being placed in the kiln, our master potter hand-carved his initials and a number out of 100 on the bottom of each piece indicating its uniqueness within the collection.
