An elegant, palest blue white porcelain octagonal bowl with colour variations reflecting the melting and flow of the glaze into the stamped markings. The outer wall is lightly impressed with a fish stamp and inside there are brushed iron oxide decoration, texture marks and a light imprint of a lobster. The bowl was thrown with a UK porcelain and shaped octagonal while still soft. After biscuit firing and glazing the piece was fired to 1300C to make it impermeable and very durable. This octagonal bowl is perfect for breakfast cereal or fruit. Alternatively it could simply be displayed just for its uplifting appearance.
- All of my work is one-of- a-kind and made by hand.
- The bowl measures approximately 6cm tall and 16cm wide and is food, oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
- The bottoms is impressed with my seal, the letter P, and its identity number 9662.
I am intrigued by Oriental ceramics and delicate celadon glazes such as those from Song dynasty. I have been trying to obtain the pale ice-blue colour that can be found on special pieces. There are only certain parts of the kiln where the effect can be achieved but customer feedback encourages me to refine the process. I really like the whole process of throwing and shaping octagonal bowls. There is plenty of scope for freedom of expression with outer surfaces for artistic treatment and an underside for the unexpected. When the bowl is turned over there is subtle textural decoration, an individual stamped pot number and my personal mark, a small letter P. The bowl is given a marine theme with the lobster and fish imprints and the pale blue glaze. This bowl would make a personal statement on a table or shelf with or without contents and invites conversation and handling. Equally it could be directly functional for showing off the colours of summer fruits.
