Petit 3 Feathers

The power of the simplest of feathers. They are the whispered messages from those who have passed on before us.
This intimate keepsake is wheel thrown and then hand carved with feathers surrounding a base. Three peaked feathers create the finial of the lid.

• 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’. It is now more durable, able to hold water, and is food safe if ‘glazed’ on the interior for food use.
