Created by renowned Catawba potter Eric Canty, this piece is a spectacular vase with a most impressive polish. The hues are an impressive black, and reddish brown creating an impressive half and half finish. Eric created this piece in our time honored pottery tradition. The Catawba never used wheels, paints, or slip poured pieces. They were all done by hand with pipe or pan clay or a mixture of the two depending on the size of the piece and fired in outdoor firing pits or fire places depending upon the weather.
