I made Taos Bloom Oil Pourer on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. It has an elegant shape and the long-neck makes for easy grasping when in the throws of cooking. It sits on a flat bottom and is a balanced pour. The silicone cork fits snugly in the neck and will not leak.
I call this glaze treatment “Taos Bloom” because the daubs of red gold I add to the dark blue fire out like blooms. The blue glaze is actually a floating blue that I mix, but I apply it thinly so that it pulls toward the cobalt side of things. Then I trail a red gold and daub with a sash brush to add interest over the surface and give the piece a little poetry.
Fill Taos Bloom Oil Pourer with an oil you use frequently. Continuous use will keep the oil fresh and will avoid the need to wash the pourer. If you do need to wash the pourer, use a bottle brush and sit the pourer upside down to drain.
Makes a great gift for birthday, holiday, wedding, anniversary, house warming, and, well, any occasion.
Glazed on the inside as well as the outside.
