unique ceramic serving dish

£55.00

elegant ceramic fruit or salad bowl for the dining room

Sold By: Peter Arscott

Description

A unique contemporary serving dish, unusual but really elegant, and ideal as a way to serve fruit, or snacks, and it really comes into its own when used simply as a table centrepiece.

The shape is a winner and it truly stands out in any setting, whether it has anything in it or nothing at all

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

As with all handmade ceramics there may be minor imperfections or very slight variations from the photographs. Such imperfections are not considered to be flaws, they simply reflect the unique character of each piece and are a natural part of the pottery process.

Dimensions: 33 x 27 x 6 cms

Weight: 1.8 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.
