Covered Pod Vessel
Covered Pod Vessel, with Bamboo Locking Lid - I have done a lot of exploring pod forms, using different numbers of lobes (3,4,5,6 being my favorites). Most become either open bowls, closing forms, or bottle vase shapes. On this one the lid has a flange inside that fits it snuggly to the form and a piece of finished and polished bamboo to create tension to hold it in place. It has a wood ash glaze over a wash and a wax rub that accentuates the pinching textures. Its about 16" in diameter, a piece that needs its own display space.
