Small red ceramic pepper, ceramic food art by JagnaB
This red pepper belongs to a set of 3, this is for 1 pod, the smallest (see last photo for comparison) which is 12 cm high x 7.5 cm wide (4.7 x 3 inch).
This ceramic piece is entirely hand-built, I haven’t used any molds nor a potter’s wheel.
It is made out of natural red clay , to achieve the unique effect its surface has been carved, bisque fired and then covered with oxides, all of them home-made according to my own recipes. The piece has been fired multiple times to different temperatures, and is very smooth to the touch.
12 cm high x 7.5 cm wide (4.7 x 3 inch).
FINISHING AND COLOR:
Red clay body .
Black dry oxide glazing on the indents and stem.
The piece is signed on the bottom.
This piece is meant for decoration only, it should not be put in contact with food.
It can very well be used as a fancy paper weight.
