The carving reminds me of paths going up the side of a cliff. It's hefty for its size at a solid 600g.
The "floating foot" is something I *ahem* borrowed from Cory Lum. It is a cool effect:

The red stoneware has lots of soluble salts that come to the surface as the piece dries and fluxes the surface when it's fired. It's like self-glazing clay; on this piece, the effect is very exaggerated. You can see what the clay is like without this effect in the picture showing the skirt of the lid.
It pours beautifully, but I need to see if the clay is too porous when making tea. I look forward to testing it!
