Large stoneware pottery bowl glazed in smokey blue with swallow design. Handmade Stoneware Pottery by littlewrenpottery on Etsy.

When the first swallows arrive in the countryside summer is definitely here, with their daring swoops across the sky these bold birds are a joy to watch. On the front of this large round bowl is a swallow captured in flight across a sky of blues and sea green, a year round reminder of summer.

Hand thrown on my potters wheel from white Devonshire stoneware this bowls shape was inspired by traditional Japanese pottery. Decorated in smokey blue outside it has a satin finish to the touch and inside has been glazed with glossy cloud white making it easier to clean. The outside swallow decal was modeled by hand and affixed to the surface of the bowl, it remains unglazed providing a dramatic contrast between the natural clay colour and glaze.

A shallow foot ring finishes off the look of this bowl and it will sit flush on your table when it comes to snack time. It's large size is great to use as either a serving bowl for pasta or fluffy rice to your year round fruit bowl.

This bowl can be cleaned in the dishwasher.

The bowl is 6.8 inches (17.5 cm) in diameter and 4.3 inches (11 cm) in height.

As much as I love our furry friends this piece was created in a pet free and smoke free studio.
