Horsehair pottery is created by laying real horsehair (or feathers) on a clay pot that has been heated to 1600o F.
The organic materials leave a carbon mark.
Pieces with mica infused terra sigillata interact with the burning process to create a beautiful colored halo.
Other pieces are finished with an overcoating of ferric chloride to give an orange to brown glow.
This piece is a MICA INFUSED terra sigillata finish.
Horsehair pieces are not food safe!
