This piece was placed in the kiln sideways, resting on three seashells. This side-firing is common firing technique that leaves the imprints of the shells in the piece as the clay softens at high temperatures. The calcium of the seashells themselves is burnt away in the extreme heat.
All Goertzen Pottery pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe.
