A hefty cereal bowl, slowly made with coils and pinched into shape. The elegant foot on this bowl makes it ultra comfortable to hold while nestled onto the couch, and an ideal vessel for floral centrepieces. This piece has a thick layer of glass in the base from melted wood ash.
6.25” wide x 2.75” high
High iron stoneware clay.
59 hour anagama firing.
This piece was fired in a wood-burning kiln, using no electricity or gas. The interior of all my pieces are coated with a food safe glaze, while the outsides are left to be “self-glazed” by the ash, the flame, and the heat of the wood firing process. Their surfaces show dynamic stories that have been carved by hand, and then enhanced by the mark of the fire. The flame path licks and draws, rolls and wraps. Each piece highlights the firing’s history and displays the variation within each kiln load. Like people, no two pieces are ever the same.
