Big Ginger made on the wheel from an iron bearing stoneware clay. It’s a fully expressed form, standing 13″ in height and 10.5″ across. Big Ginger adds a rich and robust focal point to any home decor. Perfect in a niche or on a side board.
I created the rich body color with a rub of red iron oxide that is baked into the clay; then I poured the black satin glaze from the bottom allowing it to trail over the shoulder. This anchors the piece and gives it intrigue. Next, I balanced the upper portion with some streaks of cream glaze; lastly, I mirrored the colors from the body of the pot in the lid.
I am pleased this big pot is the right weight for its size; sturdy yet elegant. Striking, but sophisticated in the color palette.
Makes a unique wedding gift, anniversary gift, or housewarming gift.
Fired to 2200 degrees F in oxidation. It’s water tight and fully safe for food storage if you should so choose.
