This stunning bowl showcases all the magnificence I have discovered through the chemistry of cone 6 glazing. When painting ceramics, the glaze colour is rarely similar to its final product, and the same is true for the colours of this bowl. Through layering certain glazes, a beautiful and somewhat unpredictable flood of colour will emerge as these pieces fire to their final temp of 1200C. This beauty has come out exactly perfectly as envisioned. The colours and beautiful weighting of the piece serve to increase the value of this very special one off functional artwork.
This is a one of a kind pinch pot created bowl has been made from cool white salt and pepper speckled clay, and hand glazed with colours inspired by the sunsets looking out to sea over the vines of the McLarenvale region of South Australia.
It holds approx 250ml. It has a heavy base and fine walls, and is a lovely weight in the hand for a treasured treat.
It was made from a ball of clay that was pinched into shape, dried, fired to 900C, sanded, painted with three coats of each colour, fired a second time to 1200C, sanded a final time and then photographed, measured, weighed, washed and stored for sale. All together it will have spent 3 hours over 4 weeks in my hands receiving loving healing reiki before it makes its way to its new home. <3
Made from clay inspired by my beloved pet Hearth, and named in memory of a beautiful friend who loved his sweet treats. In actual fact, in his world sweet treats meant savoury yums, and meaty rewards were the after dinner sweets… he was strange, but that’s why we loved him so deeply. <3
May this bowl be full of beautiful cherished memories. <3
(Would suit some cherries pretty well too actually! 🙂 )
