This handmade sculptural ceramic pottery tea bowl is thrown on the potters wheel.
I have thrown it with thick walls to allow for deep carving.
I wait until a certain degree of drying has occurred and then I carve and manipulate the creamy white porcelain clay by hand.
I do not add any additional clay, I only subtract.
The piece is bisque fired in my electric kiln and then glazed a glossy clear on the interior of the vessel and the recessed bottom of the foot only.
The outside is left naked allowing appreciation of the matte texture and creamy color of the natural clay.
The piece is then fired again in my electric kiln to over 2185 degrees.
It is completely water-tight and the clay is fully vitrified at this point(no longer porous).
The vessel is 4 1/8" tall x 4 1/2" wide.

The piece is wonderful for drinking tea or any hot liquid as the deep carving keeps your hand from feeling the extreme heat of the contents... It feels wonderfully tactile cupped in your hands!
This makes a nice set of 2 with Carved Modern Sculptural Ceramic Pottery Tea Bowl Creamy White Porcelain 1. http://www.etsy.com/listing/95786742/modern-sculptural-ceramic-tea-bowl

This piece is inspired by texture in nature and folds of textiles.
The organic yet modern appearance entices the eye.
I do not attempt to recreate but rather, to reinterpret my inspirations.
I most enjoy the process of carving these pieces and I believe my enjoyment is evident in the final visual result.

As with all of my work, there is no slip-casting or molds involved.
Each piece is handmade and therefore "one of a kind".
Even if similar items are made, they are never EXACTLY alike,
as that would be impossible!
