This unique ceramic object was made entirely by hand. The jar and its lid were both thrown on the wheel from white stoneware clay, then painted with a cobalt oxide coloured slip that was carved away to reveal the white clay beneath. Each Koi carp object I produce is entirely unique as I always work directly onto the raw clay, carving freehand with the sgraffito technique. The lid of the pot has been modelled by hand. The entire exterior is finished with a Chun transparent glaze, while the inside is a deep, smooth satin turquoise blue.
The glazes are food safe, fired to 1260 degrees, rendering this object functional as well as highly decorative.
