It is glazed in our beautiful cobalt blue and black combination, accented with a splash of turquoise. Unlike wheel-thrown work that takes its shape on the potter's wheel, hand built pieces start out as a rolled slab, something like a pie crust. Tama then trims, tucks and shapes the edges, giving each a rounded, organic look. On the bottom are clay feet padded with felt, so it can set softly on fine furniture. It is signed and dated with an inscribed signature. This is a wonderful piece both for either home decorating or serving.
