Poetry bowl (soft rests the day)
This lovely bow incorporates original poetry by Chris. The wet clay is rolled out to the correct thickness and the design is drawn on, along with the hand-stamped letters. For the first drying stage the bowl is dried in a mold while protected so it doesn't dry to quickly and crack. Once it has started drying it is taken out of the bowl, very carefully as this is when it is at it's most delicate. Once finally dry the bowl is fired then glazed and fired again. The red glaze of the sun has run on this piece- for some reason this has been a problem with this red glaze before. For this reason we are offering this bowl as a second.   The bowl has a 16 cm diameter.
