This lovely bowl 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 its most delicate. Once finally dry, the bowl is fired then glazed and fired again.
The bowl has a 13cm diameter.
