The Distressed Sandstone Collection is a series of hand-thrown vessels made from tan stoneware with an elegant surface texture. This intricate process begins with a cylinder thrown on the wheel from tan clay. The surface layer is dried with a heat gun and the white slip is applied. The slip is dried with heat and the sodium silicate is applied. After undergoing another round of heat to the surface, the vessel is then shaped from the inside using one hand to push the walls out. This process breaks the dried layer of clay creating a delicate cracked texture over the body of the piece, revealing the tan clay beneath the white. After being thrown on the wheel the vessel undergoes more intentional shaping by hand to create more dimension within the piece. The vessel is trimmed and undergoes two rounds of firing before completion.

Handmade in Northern Washington state

The surface of the vessel is left raw to highlight the beauty of the clay bodies used, the inside has been lined with a clear glaze allowing the piece to hold water.
