Artist: Tim Curtin I've been working in clay for twenty years now, and what originally started as a lark has become a definite obsession. I love the ability to sit down with a lump of mud and turn it into something beautiful and long-lasting with nothing more than my hands and fire. These are *not* your run-of-the-mill corner store bottle toppers -- they are a labor of love, each truly one-of-a-kind, take hours to make, and are built to last! The business end is machined from the highest quality stainless available anywhere, which is then carefully attached to my creations using industrial-strength epoxy. Unlike most stoppers that are plated and can flake or pit, these are medical-grade and can be kept in a bottle for as long as you like. Perfect for anything from wine to perfume to vinegar.

Medium-sized stoneware vase, wheel-thrown, coated in black slip, and glazed inside and over the rim with gloss black. Will hold water. Lead-free, food-safe, microwaveable, and dishwasher safe (although hand-washing is recommended.) The last photo shows the vase just after being thrown and slipped. Signed Tim Curtin and dated '13 by scribing through the slip on the bottom so the original white of the stoneware shows through.

Dimensions: 6" tall by 3" wide. Weighs just over 11oz.

Very nice weight and balance in the hand. This vase will look regal on a shelf, windowsill, desk or bureau!

All my creations come very carefully wrapped for safety. If you have special shipping needs, let me know and I'll certainly accommodate.
