This salt glaze jug is from a recent firing and is one of the few left from that firing. They are $60.00 each, They have bright cryatals created by rutile and cobalt oxides. The crystals form in response to the atmosphere in the kiln. The pebbled surface of the glaze in the lower half of this piece, is typical of the salt glazing process.The pebbles of glass form around the silica molecules in the clay.
The potter Sam Moligian controls the Salt Kiln and its atmoshpere. In doing so he controls the movement of the elements, iron, coblat and silicon oxides in the pottery. This produces fine changes in colour in each piece; so that each piece is individual and can not be exactly reproduced.
