contemporary ceramic bowl


a handmade unique ceramic gift that brings art into your home

Sold By: Peter Arscott


Each bowl we make is unique and always different in some way from the others – and we vary the colours. Each piece you buy is a true “one off”, but all will contain the same hand painted colours with slight variations of brushstroke and hue.

A fine hand made three legged bowl for serving snacks such as olives or nuts, either at the table or on a coffee table or side table in the sitting room when you are having a party. It looks good,  and goes well alongside a cold Dry Martini or a Manhattan. It is the perfect bowl for serving snacks with your cocktails.

Each piece takes days to make, from flattening the clay and passing it through the slab roller, shaping and cutting and letting it dry for over a week, then biscuit firing it to 1000 degrees.
When it has cooled down the oxides are painted on, and the glaze is finally poured over the surfaces before it is once more placed in the kiln for the final firing at about 1270 degrees.

About the Maker:

Peter Arscott is a painter and ceramicist who uses either grogged porcelain or stoneware glaze-fired to nearly thirteen hundred degrees. Before this happens, he bisque-fires his pieces to a thousand degrees and then paints oxides and stains on them before dipping them in a transparent glaze. Everything is made by hand or on a slab roller, he does not use a wheel, and little planning goes into the shapes or the colours – cutting out and joining pieces and fragments as the mood takes him, or brushing on certain colours because he has seen a Paul Klee painting or been on a walk in Wales. As a result of this approach, he does not make things twice, and though you can put flowers in his vases he himself is not interested in function and is more interested in playing with form and allowing the pieces to work as paintings.
