No.5 – Beaker (late 1990’s)
This is a classic Winchcombe Pottery beaker form, so simple but elegant. The slip is a clay that I dug when I was building the shed for my kiln. It is a beautiful ocher color in the ground and all I did was sieve out the big chunks, add some water and apply it to the wet pot before combing it. A simple celedon glaze covers the entire pot.
It also has a stamp that I only used on a couple of pots, it was too similar to one of the stamps I had made for one of my assistants. The ‘J’ is for John, my middle name.
10 ounce capacity.
4 1/2″h x 3 1/2″
