A wood fired soap dish that has been colored by flames and lightly glazed by the wood ash in the fire.
It was thrown on a wheel then altered by throwing it on a stone slab then shaped and dried in a cotton sling. The raised spiral helps keep the soap out of the water.
The stoneware clay used to make this soap dish has been formulated to take the heat of a cone 13 (approx. 2450 degrees F.) wood-firing. It has been colored by the flames and lightly glazed around the edge by the wood ash in the fire. Most of the surface is subtle and nicely colored raw clay. It was fired in an anagama kiln stoked with wood every few minutes non-stop for 5 days. Signed.
About 7 inches long and about 4 wide.
If you buy more than one item the shipping may be more than it should be. If it is I will combine the shipping and refund the overcharge. If you want an estimate of the actual shipping before buying contact me.
I accept Paypal, credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet, etc.
Pottery is heavy and fragile so shipping is always expensive. I use 200# test boxes, lots of foam and bubble wrap, double-box when necessary and take the time to pack so that you don't get a box full of shards.
I ship next business day (usually including Saturday).
I ship Internationally to many countries. I do not ship to some countries where I've had problems with delivery, customs, or insurance, or other retailers have reported problems with lost shipments (such as Italy, Russia, and Brazil). Internationally I ship Priority Mail International and Priority Mail Express International.
Just contact me within: 14 days of delivery

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Customer Satisfaction Guarantee: If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, return the pottery (undamaged, carefully packed and insured) within 10 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price. Shipping is not refunded.
Shipping both ways is refunded if the problem is caused by a mistake on my part or a defect in the pottery. Again, it must be returned within 10 days of receipt (You have 10 days to ship it back. It may take 15 or so days for us to receive it.)
If the pottery arrives damaged due to shipping, put the pottery back in the box packed the way it was before you opened it and contact me so that I can file a claim with the USPS or UPS.
