three legged bowl


ceramic bowl with retro design and three legs

Sold By: Peter Arscott


The geometric painted design on this stoneware bowl echoes the work of American Abstract  art of the 1950s. The retro feel is further emphasized by the three “Sputnik” legs that hold it up and give it balance and stability that four legs cannot. No matter how uneven your surface this piece will not wobble. Subtle blues, greens and pink are offset by the sweep of the bold black marks. A beautiful centrepiece for any table or sideboard. Dimensions: 19 x 19 x 5 cms.  Weight: 0.5 k.

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.
