About this piece: I live in a small town on the coast of Washington and walk on the beach frequently. I began seeing these beautiful pieces of wind and water eroded cedar and fir knotholes. I wanted a way to incorporate them into my pottery so they would be distinct, yet participate in the entire piece. Since each piece of weathered wood has a unique shape and feeling, each vessel is shaped to enhance and communicate with the wood. This flask has been wood fired for 30 hours.
