A striking, handmade bowl. It truly is a functional piece of art, made to enhance each day.
This piece was thrown on the pottery wheel out of Polar Ice porcelain. It fires to an incredible bright white and has translucency when you shine light through it. I take great care when trimming the foot ring to remove excess weight.
The floral design flows around the outside of about half of the bowl. It is carved free-hand to suit the form of the bowl, peeking up over the top of the rim. You can feel the carving while you hold it and the curves of the form sit perfectly in your hands. I inlaid the carving with a smooth, vibrant gradient. The inside is glazed with tranquil robin's egg blue.
One of these bowls takes me approximately 3-3.5 hours of skilled hands-on making, carving and glazing.
Microwave & dishwasher safe.
