This GORGEOUS bowl is hand crafted out of red clay. The assembly portion of this piece alone takes 2-3 hours. Once out of the bisque kiln, I glazed it with "jewelry" which breaks at ridges and uneven surfaces. This is what gives this bowl the unique "mottled" appearance. Each piece is truly one of a kind and unique! Looking for a special gift for Christmas? Anniversary? Birthday? Don't wait too long!! There is a MINIMUM lag time of 1 week for this piece, even if on a rush order. They are flying off my shelves as soon as I make them, and sometimes, as soon as I remove them from the kiln!!

This item represents what you will receive. It will not be the exact item pictured.

Clay is slab rolled to between 1/4" and 1/8" thickness. Anywhere from 15-20 individual pieces are cut from the clay. They are then assembled on a mold to help for the bowl shape. once the clay is a "soft leather hard", I remove the bowl from the top/outside of the mold, and place it inside to allow it to finish drying. Clay shrinks as it dries and must be allowed to have room to accommodate the shrinkage. If not, the form will break. Once completely air dried, I paint the desired designs on with underglaze (if there is one). It is then fired to cone 04 in a "bisque" kiln. From here, it's removed from the kiln (no fewer than 18 hours later) and glazed. It is then fired to a higher temperature, cone 5. The glaze transforms/melts and when cooled becomes what everyone knows as ceramics (again, no fewer than 18 hours).
