This is a medium sized decorative porcelain teabowl. It would make a wonderful soup, cereal or pasta bowl too. The interior is white and the exterior surface has a wonderful tactile quality and in my experience, people are drawn to pick it up and feel the surface. It is porcelain thrown on the wheel and electric fired. There are layers of decoration on the exterior of the bowl. After trimming the foot, and after drying, the outside was painted twice with black, then orange terra sigillata (a very fine colored slip) and burnished and then a resist was painted by hand and the unprotected areas were etched away with water. For a more extensive description of a technique similar to this, one can go to http://jimgottuso.wordpress.com and click on the article in the right column that was recently in Pottery Making Illustrated magazine. The interior is white glaze and the exterior is a transparent glaze. Dishwasher and microwave safe, LEAD FREE glaze. It's dimensions are 6.75 inches in diameter and 3.75 inches tall.
