Tall Tumbler or Vase - 9.25"

Mark Hewitt Pottery

SKU: 108-IT16

Brown salt glaze with wood ash build up from the wood kiln. A striking beauty. Plain and simple? Not really. It takes years of potting to perfect this seemingly simple shape and get the combination of elegance and function just right. Only a few of these tall tumblers with the very best shape were left undecorated, so only the magic of salt and ash would adorn them. This one was the best of the lot, and taller/sleeker than the others.

We call this an Iced Tea Ceremony Vessel  and you can also use it as a vase. Either works wonderfully!

 "Tea drinking has fueled pottery making across the globe. Vessels are required. Bowls for the Japanese Tea Ceremony, teacups and saucers for English tea-time and mugs here in the US are easy examples. Here in the South iced tea is a favorite drink, so I created these tall tumblers or Iced Tea Ceremony Vessels, as I like to call them."  Mark
