Flowering Ashes Urn
Created by Eric Pilhofer
This tranquil and uplifting piece is hand built using a pinched-dab construction method. The lower and lid portions highlight this technique by allowing the small dabs to be exposed. Stains are applied and hand burnished to bring out the nuances in the varying surface textures. A rich, metallic glaze accents the center section. The piece is fired multiple times, and the distinctive driftwood handle on the lid adds an earthly connection. Weighs approximately ten pounds. Each piece is unique and will vary.
