Title: Gold Granite and Copper Bottle
Warm and cool toned miniature bottle with flared lip.
3" x 1.5"
My obsession with wheel-thrown forms led me to making miniatures, and I began creating these smaller, more intricate shapes exclusively. Several years later, my father, Jerry Sawitz, and I started to experiment with crystal or crystalline glazes, eventually devoting our entire ceramic craft to crystal.
Everything I make is hand-thrown porcelain, miniature, and crystal-glazed with glazes my father and I develop and mix ourselves. I am drawn to these tiny, sparkling objects in a way I can’t describe; opening the kiln after a crystal fire can be like Christmas morning for a child, filled with excitement and anticipation that is hard to find anywhere else.
