these ceramic pieces were hand-thrown from white stoneware and smoke fired for several days to achieve the textures, colors, and scents of the final product. This 30,000-year-old process consists of a fire built from wood shavings, sawdust, and salt. All are combined with the ceramic pieces in a kiln, ignited, and left to smolder. Patterns of trapped carbon and fumes from the smoke impart subtle color variations and mark each vessel in a way that cannot be reproduced.
