Pristine Palm Vessel
Created by Jean Elton
The outside of this vessel is left unglazed so as to better showcase the pattern of the particular palm leaf that was found. The inside is smooth. The work is fired first to approximately 1800 degrees F, glazed white to showcase the form, and finished in a spray booth with a transparent gloss glaze. The object emerges from the final firing which requires approximately 2100 degrees F to take the work to its final form: a lightweight (approximately 5 pounds) yet sturdy vessel that can be used as a delightful work of ceramic art.
