Reds and brownish-greens will play with the light, and you'll get a different color simply by giving this vase a quarter-turn. Is your favorite side the copper red? Or the brownish green? Or that line between the two colors that's so enigmatic?
This piece, unlike Cetty's raku pieces, was fired in the electric kiln, was glazed with non-toxic food-safe glazes and is both water and food-safe.
These breathtaking pieces have been hand-thrown, hand-glazed, and fired by a woman with years of experience making original, and highly sought-after, work. These one-of-a-kind pieces are made by HaldeCraft artist-in-residence, Colette (Cetty, to her friends). Cetty has studied ceramics at Western Carolina University and Penland School of Arts and Crafts, and has twenty years of experience working with clay. She has been, at various times in her life, an amateur geologist, owner of a rock/gemstone store, owner of a pottery store (where she did both production and lessons), and she is a wonderful and beloved wife, mother, aunt, and grandmother. She currently travels across the US visiting family with her husband and their dog in their RV, and has stopped at HaldeCraft to make beautiful pottery, give lessons, teach about throwing and wood-fired kilns, and appreciate Florida sunsets.
