A delightful hand thrown in earthenware clay bowl. Coloured with light blue slip (liquid clay with a colour added) altered, pierced and carved using the scrafitto method. The bowl will then dry completely and fired for the first time at 10.80 degrees Celsius. It will then be glaze with a transparent glaze and fired again in the glaze firing at 1100 degrees Celsius. As each product is individually hand thrown on the potter’s wheel and therefore unique, slight variables in size and colour are possible, but this is kept to a minimum. The bowl is available in light blue colour, a dark blue navy colour and a green colour. A wonderful item of ceramics to complement your table or kitchen.
How this was made
Hand thrown in white earthenware clay, coloured with slip and altered on the rim. Pierced with a hole cutter varieties of sizes and carved using the scrafitto method. Dried completely before firing its first time in an electric kiln (28 hours from start to finish). The biscuit fired bowl is then covered in transparent glaze, dried again and using the hole cutter the glaze is moved from all the holes so that they are open. It is then fired again in an electric kiln to 1100 degrees Celsius (again 26 hours).
What's included in the price?
One light blue cow parsley bowl.
Having been given a piece of clay when I was 6 years old, I knew what I wanted to do. My dad thought I needed a "proper job" and I became a secretary. Soon I wanted to go back to college and study for my degree. A local pottery offered me a job as a thrower and after several years employed I was able to and given the opportunity to open my own studio. Teaching and sharing my knowledge about clay and all its workings on the potter's wheel and hand building are now paramount to Siramik.
