Conservation Notes

This heavy vase was thrown in two parts that were luted together. The body is white and has fired to a pale orange color on the foot. The foot-ring is wide, flat, and unglazed; a small circle at its center is recessed and glazed. The interior is unglazed, except for white glaze on the upper neck and bottom. There are minor glaze flaws on the surface and a line inside the neck where the glaze has pulled away from itself.
