About 7" tall. This one has all kinds of wild alchemy, check out how the glaze has started to separate into more and less viscous. I underfired this one, applied glaze over the partially-melted ash and fired it again, still wasn't satisfied so I fired it again in my very salty kiln! Check out the next picture, the (gravitational) top during the fire. I hope the photo transmits well enough that you can see how all the chemicals and temperature have etched into the clay body.
