This deep rim plate or shallow bowl is wheel thrown and made from stoneware clay with some simple incised decoration around the outside wall. The glaze varies from blue to grey with the occasional highlight of olive green.
Approximate sizes of the piece is as follows: Diameter 18.5cm, Height 4.5cm. Just nice for a large single serve of food for one hungry person or as a small serving plate for something like a salad, or a sharing dish at dinner or lunch.
While making this bowl I was thinking about daily rituals in our lives. Things like sharing food and conversation. Repeated actions like reaching for food from a shared dish. Dragging a bowl across a wooden table. Folding a serviette in half. How you slice up your pancake. Nourishing ourselves and our friends and family with good food. Things which open up space for us to be human, to connect, to share life and to enjoy. This bowl is my thoughts about our daily actions and rituals, our habits and our humanity, made manifest in ceramic form.
About my ceramics:
All pieces are unique and have their own subtle differences in form and colour. Items sold as pairs are not identical, but similar. I see this as a happy feature of handmade goods.
All glazes are food-safe and can be used as daily functional ware. White glazes and slip decoration may stain with use, as may the unglazed bases of items. Wash with regular dish soap and a sponge. Scouring may scratch the glaze. Dishwasher or microwave use not recommended.
