This is a new hand coiled pine pitch jar that has been traditionally fired outdoors. This is the very first piece by Samuel in this form. Samuel concentrated on the shape. Since the piece is plain polished and fired outdoors, one can see the excellence in coloration and form. Many fire clouds appear. The round opening and flat surfaces of this vase are so contemporary looking yet using all natural pigments and traditional techniques. After Samuel fired the piece outdoors, he added pine pitch which was applied both inside and out while the pot was still warm. Afterwards, he polished it with a cotton cloth to help achieve that excellent shine. As you turn the piece around, it is beautiful from all angles. The varied hues of reds and blacks are stunning. There are deep carved ribs running horizontally around the ribs. Those ribs add extra visual appeal. This is a truly beautiful work of art.
