Beautifully polished and turbant like design covered with graphite which gives the piece a very attractive look.
About the artist:
Now on his fifties Isrrael has been doing pottery all his life. Some of his pieces are polished to get a perfect shin metallic look like the one shown here. Recently, his pieces are done as follows: when the piece is still wet he pushes little holes on perfect parallel lines and then when the piece is dry he fires it on a tent of wood covered with a plant pot to get an oxigen reduction firing, the result is an striking matte black pot.
