Soda-Fired Pennsylvaia Crimped Rim Paperwhite Pot with Attached Saucer
Please select all options.
This style of a decorative crimped rim is inspired pottery of Chester County, PA, circa 1860. Small flower pots with attached saucers were part of a country potter's seasonal offerings, augmenting their "bread & butter" of utilitarian crocks and jugs. Flower pots of this period were normally made in either salt-glazed stoneware with cobalt blue decoration, or were lead glazed, red earthenware with manganese decoration.
The rim of my pot has been dipped in glaze, and then soda fired to stoneware temperatures. Soda firing adds a thin coating of glass to the portions of the pot where glaze was not applied, and gives, extra sheen and movement to the glazed portions Stoneware is vitreous and waterproof, however, be careful where you water the pot; if it is overwatered, water will fill the saucer and could damage fine furniture.
