Saggar-fired covered urn
This piece was thrown on the wheel, then burnished to create a smooth surface. It was then covered with terra siggilata and burnished again to create a lustrous sheen. The piece was fired in a saggar with iron oxide, steel wool, cobalt carbonate and bits of seaweed. It is a decorative object and not food or dishwasher safe. It has been polished with wax to protect the surface.
