Large Cornish slate glazed jar


This is a large thrown stoneware jar by Matthew Blakely that he has covered with a glaze produced from Cornish slate. Matthew then fired this pot in his wood-fired kiln. The surface of this pot is highly reflective making it challenging to photograph. Matthew is pictured holding this pot that he has stamped on the base with his potters mark. In the image of the two jars, this is the larger one.
