A stoneware bowl with variations of blue colouration reflecting the melting and flow of the glaze over the texture marks, its consequent thickness and its interaction with the clay minerals and the iron oxide decoration. The glaze was applied in several layers to obtain the required thickness range. The pale blue and cream inside is where the glaze has pooled and thickened around the fish imprint. The orange brown derives from iron oxide brush-applied decoration. The bowl was thrown with a UK stoneware and after biscuit firing and glazing the piece was fired to 1300C to make it impermeable and very durable. The wheel thrown bowl will add a perfect display accent in any domestic setting. It can be used as an eye-catching decorative feature on a shelf or table. It could alternatively function as a serving dish for fruit, hot food or salad.
- The bowl measures approximately 9cm tall and 21cm wide and is food, oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
- The bottoms is impressed with my seal, the letter P, and its identity number 9776.
I love the whole process of throwing and shaping bowls. There is plenty of scope for freedom of expression with regard to form, there is are upper surfaces for interesting flow of the glaze and an underside for adding unexpected decoration. When the bowl is turned over there are blue glaze runs over textural decoration, an individual stamped pot number and my personal mark, a small letter P. The bowl was fired with a titanium glaze that pools inside to cream and blue, punctuated with rich brown streaks of brush-applied iron oxide. The imprinted fish, colours and texture were inspired by rock-pools and marine images. This bowl would make a personal statement on a table or shelf with or without contents and invites discussion of personal visual associations. On a more mundane level it could be used for cooking and serving food.
