Large OOAK (ONE OF A KIND) hand made dark brown (chocolate) stoneware unfooted pottery ceramic bowl with sgraffito drawing through a cream colored terra sigillata, clear glazed and food safe.

13 1/2" X 13 1/2" X 4 1/4"

Drawing is loosely based on an ancient cuneiform inscription, various rock carvings and cloth patterns. The form of the bowl is one of my favorites and is based on very early basket and pottery forms that have been in use for at least 10,000 years. It will come with a ring base for stability, as was the common practice before feet were incorporated into vessel forms.

All my bowls are food safe unless otherwise noted. This one is quite large and is food safe. It has a clear glossy glaze that brings out the natural color of the clay and terra sigillata.

Signed and dated.

I would call it dishwasher safe but happier to be hand washed. The detergent used in dishwashers etches glass and glazed items over time. If you really care about something - hand wash it.

You may have noticed that I am not a “production potter”. I don't make the same thing over and over again. There is nothing wrong in doing that, it is just not where my interests lay. I am what is termed a “studio potter”. I like bowl forms in their various guises. No two of my pieces are the same, even when working on a similar theme. It can take upwards of a week for me to make one piece. Any given piece may take several visits to the kiln before I get the color development that I want. I tend to treat each object that I make as an individual, rather than a “thing”. I only work with materials that I feel have a “spark” to them, a sort of “life force” element.

If you have any questions about the bowl, the process, or the exhibition history of the piece, please do not hesitate to ask.
