One of a series of rectangular bottle forms from my last Anagama firing, evoking a bottle that sank to the bottom of the sea and has just been washed up on the shore.
The bottle is slab built from stoneware clay, with a dark iron slip topped by a wood ash glaze, crazed in places. In the firing, the glaze has slid down in some areas to give a contrast between glaze and slip, with a rich variation of colouring. The top received a high level of ash that has melted to develop a thick, high gloss glaze. The base has been polished smooth to protect furniture.
