I visited Tara's studio this summer and marveled over this vase. It was fired in the kiln at Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts where Tara did a residency this summer. The surface has no glaze or slip but is covered with black metallic crystals that surround the wad marks. Amazing and surprising surface for a wood kiln.
