Ginger Jar with Iznik Pattern

225.00

PATTERN: Iznik in iron
SIZE: Approx. 11"x7.5"
PROCESS: This ginger jar with domed lid is made by screen printing patterns of iron onto paper and then transferring them onto the piece halfway through the wheel-throwing stage, a process dubbed "Volumetric Image Transfer". FIRING: The pots are fired to 2300ºF and cooled without oxygen until 1375º, a process known as "Reduction Cooling" designed to retain the clay's black Iron color from the reduction of oxygen in the iron molecule.
