This piece is hand made from earthenware clay slip and fired in my kiln. The glaze used on the ceramic pinecone is a non-toxic art glaze. Art glazes are classified as a glaze that produce more than a single-colored smooth finish. Three full coats of glaze are applied by hand with a brush, then it is fired in the kiln a second time. During the second firing process the art glaze flows over the piece, areas with detail will collect glaze causing a dual coloring. The ’dual’ coloring enhances the detail between and on the individual scales of each cone. This pinecone is dishwasher & food safe and the colors or design will not wash off, fade or peel.
