there's this stuff potters use called "black wax." when you apply it, it repels the glaze and leaves the area... you guessed it: black. this is the first of a few vases I did back in spetember of '07 using black wax. all the vases in this little series had bold geometric patterns on them. (i'll try to post them consecutively.)
i've included a ton of photos of this one because the pattern isn't the same all the way around, and I doubt it's one you could guess. if you look close, i've provided a 365° view for you.
the vase is 3.5 inches in diameter x 4.75 inches tall.
black wax (obviously) and matte white glaze.
it's wheel-thrown, signed and dated, september 2007
$25 (because it took a long time to hand paint that shit.)
