Pottery Bowl Designs


These are both bowl that were slab rolled clay and then slumped over a mold (aka another bowl).

I really love the "Lace" Bowl. I used a thick cotton lace with wide openings and rolled that print in to it. I had seen another potter use it at the studio and asked about it, so this was an experiment piece for that. I also added ball feet to the bottom of this one, which was also an experiment for me. Although, really, isn't it all an experiment. :) But I do like the ball feet so much I have been adding them to my bowls. I love how the dark blue glaze over the metallic green glaze (on the outside) turned out and mixed together.

The plain bowl I made for our babysitter for Christmas to put in the jewelry that my children were making her. I did glue a piece of felt to the bottom of it to keep it was scratching the top of her dresser, or wherever she puts it.

What a clever idea to imprint a lace pattern on the bowl! Love it!
