This is a ONE OFF hand built piece that belongs to the CUT & FOLD collection. It was hand formed joining 7 triangular slabs (one equilateral and 6 isosceles triangles). It has clear glaze both inside and outside, enhancing the natural colour of the refractory clay. It was fired using the Raku technique, making it go through a huge temperature shock making the glaze (and sometimes the clay) crack. These cracks are black because of the smoke involved in the process.
This piece is not utilitarian since this technique makes it not water tight.
This item was hand crafted in our studio in Galicia, Spain. It has marks and small irregularities that are the welcome evidence of the hand made nature of the process. You will receive the exact same piece shown in the photographs, since it is a one off.
