Sarah Bak - Small Pottery Bowl - Wave and Cloud Pattern
While this bowl may be dainty, it has a big job. Responsibilities include but are not limited to holding tea bags, serving small snacks, cradling jewelry by a sink or nightstand, food prep, and more. This wheel thrown porcelain bowl is not only functional but is very pretty as well, hand painted with a wave design accented with clouds.
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 using lead free 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.
Dimensions: 4” diameter x 1 ½” high
