Flask-Vase with natural ash/Mackenzie shino. The last firing of the #Pyranhagama was inspiring in so many ways. A couple handfuls of Redart were added to the original glaze formula... Thanks @stephenrodriguez1373 for the recipe, great firing with ya. Feel free to DM me for Mackenzie glaze formula too.

Pot(s) of the day! Two amazing Stamnos amphora in Castellammare del Golfo! The Stamnos-type amphora is defined as having a footless, slanting bottom that constricts towards the base. Here, you can see a clear join line between the cast base and the thrown belly of the pot, which is rotund and decorated with a finger-pressed flower pattern. Other features of Stamnos amphora are their two thick ‘ear’ handles and the lack of a neck, replaced with a chunky rim that a wooden or linen ‘cork’ could be attached to
These amphora were traditionally water containers, and theirs thick handles were secured to walls or fences using rope. The cast base is thicker than the thrown walls to balance the amphora and reduce breakage in firing. These vessels shown have been made using grogged stoneware/terracotta clay with a stoneware slip cover. The terracotta has burnt through in places
#schoemanceramicsontour is nearly at it’s end - but there is still so much more to learn!
