Let the Spirit Move You
Let the Spirit Move You Lidded Vessel ©
Water, Breath, and Energy are the sources of life. May they be the sources of your life. Flowing freely, with love.
Note: This piece is designed to be free standing without a lid if you so choose. However because of the way the rim was created, and the finite fit of the lid – after firing, there is a matching leather ‘gallery’ that was attached for when using as a lidded and secure vessel.

• About the process:
Each piece is a one-of-a-kind wheel-thrown clay creation. After being shaped on the potter’s wheel, the piece is allowed to semi-dry to what is called the leather-hard stage. Once it reaches this “half dry” state the piece is able to be shaped, carved and textured. Once completely dry – or ‘bone dry’ it is placed in an electric kiln for a ‘bisque firing’ which takes many, many hours reaching a temp of approximately 1800 degrees. After the piece has completed this bisque process, it is cooled, stained with oxides or stains, burnished if necessary, and glazed. The final process of high firing at a temp of approximately 2200 degrees transforms the piece from a ‘bisque’ to a ‘stoneware’.
