Hand-carved Blue and Maroon Bowl
Food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
This is a functional piece of art. The design is individual to this bowl. It's not repeated in the same way on any other piece I've made. I start with a blank slipcast bowl form from a mold I made. Then I painted on multiple coats of colored underglaze and carved the designs into its surface. It has a glossy cobalt blue glaze on the interior and is left bare on the outside. I don't glaze the outside of my pots so that the design stays as crisp and clear as possible. This also allows the design to be felt and not only seen.
