Ceramic Vase with Steel Nails

Ceramic Vase with Steel Nails

$95.00Price

This handcrafted vase has a surface that has been treated with 104 steel nails. The nails have been snipped so they are only about 3/16" long prior to being inserted into the clay while it is still slightly soft. The heat from the kiln then transforms the nails into the surface you see in the images. The interior has been glazed. The exterior surface has been treated with glaze to highlight the design, surface marks, and textures.

 

Fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln

 

approx 6.5"h x  2.75"w  (at the base) -- the top opening is approx 1"square
