Rutile slip soda vase with incised lines and marks

Rutile slip soda vase with incised lines and marks

SKU: JJ06_22_1B

Soda fired vase with incised lines under a rutile slip.  The action of the soda has created a dramatic surface on the rim of this vase, with colours from white, cream, yellow, grey and orange. Vapour fired to 1300 C in a gas kiln. 


Soda, or vapour, firing is a firing process where sodium in some form - sodium carbonate or bicarbonate, is introduced into the kiln as a solution when the temperature is at 1250˚C. 


The soda immediately volatises, and combines with the silica in the clay to form a lustrous glaze with often spectacular surfaces where the flame has licked around the pot, taking the soda with it. 


The randomness of this process gives each pot its own unique character.


Prior to firing, the pots are dipped into different clay slips (liquid clay) to give different colours and effects.
