This is one of the star designs in my entire history as a potter. It is an own, unique design, with more than 30 years, which has even become my personal brand, it is the J of my firm JHM that I imprint under the pieces and it appears in the logo. It is a small work of high craftsmanship, of elaborate and careful design in all its details.
It is an apple's size piece with a design that is extremely delicate and difficult to set up on the potter's wheel. In its elaboration I have to be especially careful with the weight, the thickness of the walls and the proportions of its shape so that it works properly. And above all, the inclination that it will later have to keep in order to maintain balance. The elaboration of the lamp requires a lot of practice, and more time and dedication than any other work of a similar or even larger size.
You must add oil to the middle of the piece, a little below the wick's mouth, which is a cotton cord. That is about 150 ml (5 oz), this is more or less half a glass. The base is unglazed, it is something that is normal for handmade ceramic pieces. This is not a problem since the piece is glazed and waterproof. It is also polished so as not to affect the surface of the furniture if used properly. It is recommended to put it on a plate or tray in case it is accidentally overturned and the oil is poured and stains the surfaces. So there is no risk of fire if the oil is watered on a solid surface.
This piece is made of stoneware, like the cups, mugs and tumblers of different sizes, and the stoneware bowls, plates, etc. All made to be used with food found in this store. Porcelain with a normal thickness walls and stoneware are the materials used to manufacture the restaurant and home tableware. That makes them food safe, microwave and dishwasher safe, and resistant to sudden temperature changes. There are other pieces like porcelain bowls or salad bowls that also share these characteristics. The interior has a glaze formulated to properly blend with the paste of the piece. So no cracking should form.
Porcelain is a harder material than stoneware, although it is more delicate to work with. It allows to make thinner walls and can be translucent. This makes it perfect for special pieces and lamps and not so much for everyday use ware as those of stoneware or porcelain with normal thickness walls.
I prepare myself the glazes with high quality industrial raw materials. They have balanced formulas so that they melt properly on the piece in the final firing. Thus they are transformed into coloured glass, they become in an inert material that does not be altered with the acids of some foods.
I have glazed this piece with a matte light green glaze and a touch of dark green glaze drops on the top side. In the kiln the glazes melt and mix creating unique and unrepeatable effects.
Below you can find other pieces of similar size and capacity that might interest you as well. I select them because they have similar or contrasting glaze or color combinations. This way you can create sets of pieces that are related, or on the contrary, select others that make contrast.
