INTENSE ✔ cobalt blue crystalline glazed bowl. I literally grow the cobalt crystals by precisely soaking the molten glaze to build the crystal structures. I take a photographic series of the developing crystals to determine the precise moment when the crystal patterns reach my desired ratio.

UNIQUE ➤ Most of my crystalline pieces are fired one at a time and each is unique in crystal pattern and tonal range. The surface detail is enhanced by the beautifully crackled surface pattern which is somehow random and coherent. Each crystalline piece is one of a kind and impossible to duplicate.

DETAIL ➤ This footed bowl is stamped with my Maine Kiln Works - Gouldsboro, ME signature logo and measures 8¼ inch diameter x 2 inches high with ½ inch foot ring height. I made and fired this bowl the first week of December 2011—so the fiery birth is still fresh in its mind.

GLAZE ➤ This glaze is lead free and food safe but due to the crackled and crystalline surface this piece is more ideally suited for display rather than food use. Serving a meal on this lively surface might give the diner indigestion.

VALUE ➤ My work is not inexpensive because I have no economies of scale. Compared to industrial manufacturing ceramic handcraft is laughably inefficient. Perhaps it's foolish to make something one step at time or perhaps that's the only way to create unique qualities?

HAND ➤ All of the pieces I list are entirely my own hand work: from designing the form, mixing the clay & glaze, forming my stoneware & porcelain and glazing and firing the finished work. I do everything involved but process the raw materials. The photographed piece is the actual one I will pack and ship to you.

SHIP ➤ This bowl is shipped with my hand formed bronze display stand, cone ▲10 (from the firing) showing the 1250℃ top temperature and my braided loop for wall displaying this brilliant porcelain piece.

★ I ship either UPS, FedEx or USPS Priority—the cost of which is included in the price for US delivery. I ship in new corrugated cartons and double box all international shipments so that your piece will arrive in perfect condition.
