A large white bowl, hand thrown in white speckled clay, altered and then an oxide combination brushed onto the rim. The oxide flows in an unpredictable way over the satin white glaze. It was this off-beat approach that gave Edith the inspiration for her combination of fibre, beads and found driftwood treatment to make this vessel a work of art.
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.
