Poetry bowl (old promise)
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 glaze on this bowl came out of the kiln much fainter than we are used to, and for this reason, we are selling this bowl as a second.
“The glimmer of an old promise
Made in haste
But never forgotten”
The bowl has a 19cm diameter.
