A large slab-formed bowl with manipulated edges that form a scallop like shape. The rim has been pierced to accommodate a tightly woven fibre edge which follows the curves of the form. The final flourish is a paper flower at the end of beautiful crackle-glazed beads. The bowl has been glazed in a satin black. Dimensions: H: 8cm x W: 38cm.
This vessel is handmade and unique.
Authentic, handmade ceramic vessels can show some variation in colour, shape and texture from piece to piece. Artistic authenticity is our goal rather than identical mechanical reproductions.
