New Tsubo

Here is the first of some tsubo I’d like to put in the next firing. With the gas kiln, one of these was pretty much the limit of what I could fit into one firing, but with the wood kiln, I’ll be able to put in 20 or 30. So there is a bit of work to do yet…

This jar was coiled and paddled and is about 45cm tall. The added decorative coils on the shoulder are mainly just for decoration, but I am also hoping they will add some strength during the firing.

Some may wonder why I post a lot of work before it is fired. Sometimes it is the only time it will ever be seen in one piece. So much gets lost in the firing that it is nice to have a record of  ‘whole’ pieces to look back on.
