'Swell' - tactile turquoise blue ornament
A beautiful tactile turquoise blue bowl, perfect as an ornament or holding potted plants (please be aware that water will mark the inside of the bowl). It was thrown on the pottery wheel from white earthenware clay, then hand decorated with clay dots/ tiny spikes for added texture. The bowl was then first bisque fired at 1125C degree (cone 1), then a combination of layered glazes and cobalt oxide were applied and fired again at 1040C.
The shape and colour of the bowl was inspired by the swell of a sea wave, as well as the luxurious colours and approach of the art nouveau style.
Width: 12.5 cm Height: 11 cm
Hand wash only. Please be aware that due to the nature of the textured decoration the bowl might be slightly sharp to the touch.
