This teabowl has stamped impressions from antique barbwire (I grew up in Colorado and used to collect the old barbwire). It is made with Darkstar stoneware (a wild clay from Starworks in NC), and so the raw clay is almost purple in color. It was fired in the second chamber of the woodkiln with a bit of salt added at the end of the firing. The firing lasted 24 hours and reached a temperature of 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit. It is dishwasher and microwave safe. Perfect for wine, bourbon, or tea.
All pots are high fired (2,400F) stoneware or porcelain. They are wood fired in a wood burning kiln for over 24 hours. As the flame crosses the pots, iron is drawn to the surface so the flames 'draw' permanent flashing marks on the pot, and the ash melts to form a glaze. All work is food safe, and dishwasher and microwave safe.
