Contemporary, elegant, tactile, handmade porcelain bowl.
Combining sculpture and design, I create functional unique pieces.
This stylish mini porcelain bowl will make a statement and create conversation wherever it is placed in your home, or it will make for a treasured gift for any special occasion.
This charcoal black colour is a coloured slip created by me. It has been slip-casted from my original shapes and moulds in my studio in Digbeth, the creative heart of Birmingham, UK. It has then gone through a first firing up to 900 degrees.
The outside of the pot is left unglazed to enhance the stunning beauty and purity of porcelain. To get that beautiful finish I carefully sand the piece until I feel it is smooth enough. It is then glazed inside and fired a second time up to 1250 degrees to make the bowl waterproof, strong and durable. The result is a contemporary ceramic bowl with a beautiful contrast between the pure charcoal black matt surface on the outside and the shiny blue-brown colour.
This mini bowl comes beautifully packaged in a rustic gift box and is then placed in a secure posting box.
Actual bowl may differ from photograph. Each piece is individually made so there will be slight variations in colour and shape, which is part of their charm.
