Beach Artware vase, uranium glaze with stamp!

Post  Ev on Thu 16 Oct - 18:58

Ok as servimg doesn't appear to be working today I am trying to use photobucket ..
This is a first having a base stamp and the shape is very familiar.  Oddly the throwing rings show up better in photos than they do in real life.  Many thanks to M Bell for letting me photograph this piece.





This chip shows that the clay is VERY white ..


The interior is glazed white ..

Ev this is great to see. It does indeed look a familiar shape and also the glazes.

The pure white clay has me puzzled ....... ?
The only other thing I have in really white clay is a Kiln Craft large mug.

Another thing to note is the footring that has been done on the wheel.  It is a shallow footring, not like the deep Steenstra ones.

The glaze doesn't look very familiar to me, it looks very unusual and the white has been put on the inside before the outside glaze as you can see the reaction created by this.

It is possible that this is a storage jar and would have had a cork at one time.

Ev, I just had a look at my corked ones and the shape of the top appears different from this one, and different again from those with fitted lids. Could be in the photo but think the angle of the rim may be too great to comfortably hold a cork.

From the shape of the chattered one I have called a vase I think it may have had a lid at some time.
