Description

This solid, weighty bowl is ideal for fruit, nuts or as a handy place to put things, and will make the perfect centrepiece for your table. These bowls can be washed in soapy water but are also dishwasher safe.

A stunning addition to your home interior or as a gift for someone special, and can only be bought as a one off piece Made from porcelain and high fired so it is durable in addition to being a beautiful object.

We use a grogged clay for our hand made bowls. The tiny pieces of malachite within help make it more robust to handling and shaping, which in this case is important given the shapes our wave bowls take on.

The clay is rolled out in a slab roller and shaped freehand, and, after drying, it is biscuited in the kiln to a temperature of 1000 degrees, then brought out and allowed to cool down before we apply cobalt oxide and turquoise stains for the colours, which are brushed on by hand before the bowl is dipped in a transparent glaze and fired in our kiln at a temperature of 1275 degrees.

Dimensions: 44 x 34 x 7 cms

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.
