A carved earthenware bowl with terra sigillata
Love this


This unique, hand-crafted bowl was made by pinching and moulding clay over a pre-fired former, and the back has been beaten to create a rather tactile "tortoise shell" effect. Inside the bowl has been carved to create a wood-like appearance. A coating of terra sigillata was brushed on too, and this has turned a beautiful light, translucent orange colour in the reduction firing.

The piece measures approx. 6.5 inches wide and 2 inches in height. Carries Mark Smalley's personal symbol impressed to the underside.

This bowl could be used to serve dry foods .. it will hold liquid for some time but not indefinitely as it is earthenware. Alternatively it would make a lovely decorative piece in its own right.
