I used the potters wheel to throw and alter this Heirloom Pumpkin! It created such an interesting shape! I used a soft white stoneware clay and it was fired to 2167 degrees in an electric kiln. The piece is glazed in a matte frosted taupe with emerald and olive accents. The stem was pulled and shaped and glazed in a deep metallic bronze. Really beautiful. This piece would make a wonderful addition to your pumpkin collection and a wonderful 9th Anniversary Gift!
