This porcelain censer is wheel thrown then pierced and the egret is sculpted and carved. Glazed with oxides, microcrystalline, celadon, and ash glazes, this piece truly delights in glaze variation and detail. Fired in oxidation to cone 6.
Herons and egrets have always held a quiet splendor to me as they stand so still and regal among their watery habitats. This censer is a reprentation of their elegance and can be used to burn incense, for a candle, or simply to enjoy as a sculpture.
Dimension: 10.5" x 3.5"
