Oil Burner – Ombre Blue

£31.00

Handmade ceramic oil burner glazed with a blue glaze with beautiful darker crystals. Drop a wax melt in the top “hat” or add some essential oils diluted in water.

The glaze is pretty special! almost white before firing, the colour develops at a very high temperature inside the kiln. Crystals form while molten in the same way as rocks and minerals form beneath the earth’s surface. Just like minerals in nature, the pattern of crystals is always different.

Description

Each piece is made with durable stoneware clay thrown on the pottery wheel. After drying for a day, the bottoms are trimmed and the piece is let to fully dry for a week. Once dry, they are fired to 900 degrees C, glazed and fired again to 1260 degrees C. Finally the bottoms are sanded twice with diamond pads to achieve a silky smooth finish.

Every item is completely unique, the glaze may look slightly different on each piece and dimensions may vary by a few millimetres.
