Desert Almond Storage Vessel
We have a lot of desert almond where my pottery studio is located so I collected a bunch to see how to prepare them. This is the vessel I used for storage. The almonds are really tiny.
I love the texture on this vessel, very bubbly.
Made from a mix of local clay and clay mined in Southern California.
Glazes made from rocks collected in the mountains and white “chalk” foraged in the Mojave desert. The rocks are slowly broken and ground by hand into a fine powder then mixed with various amounts of pinyon pine and scrub oak ashes to create different hues. Homemade white glaze inside. The whole process is quite lengthy, and several firings are often required.
Mixed building techniques – Wheel and hand building
Fired at cone 6 (2200 °F – 1204 °C) using my electric kiln.
Diameter 5 inches (13 cm)
Height: 2.75 inches (7 cm)
Weight: 1 1.7 pounds (637 gr)
