"Peacock" trinket bowl - 2 sizes available
Beautiful tactile handmade turquoise blue bowl with hand carved and patterned peacock feather design.
It was thrown on the pottery wheel from white earthenware clay, then had decorated with imprinted and carved peacock feather design, surrounded by clay dots for texture.
It was first fired at 1125 C for durability and strength, then glazed with a combination of layered glazes and re-fired at 1040 C. The cobalt oxide dots added on top of the glaze (where the clay is textured) run down and create special feather-like effect on the side of the bowl.
It is inspired by the beautiful embellishments of the art nouveau style and the colours of the sea.
- bigger design (Photos 1-3) Width: 15 cm Height: 8 cm
- smaller design (photos 4-7) Width: 13 cm Height: 6.5 cm
Please note that due to the nature of the textured decoration, the bowl might be slightly sharp to the touch.
To protect the shine of the glazes I recommend that you hand wash these bowls.
