Sarah Bak - Red Flower Berry Bowl / Colander with Saucer
Berry bowl, or colander perfect for enjoying some fresh fruit washed and served in the same dish. This wheel thrown porcelain bowl and saucer are hand painted with a bold, red floral design. This multi-purpose set can also be used as a colander for rinsing fresh berries, draining pasta, or as a fruit bowl for slowly ripening peaches or storing apples on your table.
A little bit of info about the process: After the pot is thrown with porcelain clay, the bottom trimmed of excess material, I paint the design on using underglazes while the clay is still damp. This is called the leather hard stage, and I love the sheen of the clay at this point in the process. Then, I carve through the painted areas with a special tool to create the white lines that you see within the design. Once it is fully dry, it is fired the first time, a clear glaze is applied and it is then fired the second time to a much higher temperature, approximately 2165 degrees. The whole process takes 3 to 4 weeks from beginning to completion.
Dimensions bowl: approx. 7-8” wide x 4” tall, saucer: 6” diameter x ½” tall
Due to their handmade nature, items may vary slightly in shape and pattern placement, but will be true to the original design.
