Initially, these bottles were made to protect the more vulnerable pots from the full force of the wood, ash and flame. They were placed just behind the bag wall, a chequered brick wall which directs and disperses the flame as it enters the main chamber. As a result, the bottles often emerged heavily ashed and salted. I now make them in various sizes. When they stand together in the gallery they often suggest a group of people.
