This Japanese-inspired bowl was wheel-thrown in black porcelaneous stoneware black clay. Thick porcelain slip has been applied to the exterior and iron-oxide ‘leaves’ loosley brushed on and finally Japanese cherry-blossom transfers applied before bisque firing. The bowl is then dipped in a clear glaze allowing for areas of the unglazed black clay for contrast.
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.
