Wheel-thrown altered bowl form. This piece is really gorgeous in person with the green crystals and the melted blue glass. The double rim gives it a very unique look compared to a traditional bowl shape. This would look great in any room of the house or even on a patio or porch. This bowl is large enough to be used as a fruit bowl but also pretty enough to simply be used decoratively.
Size: 6.5" tall x 12" wide
Weight: 8 lbs
This piece is made of porcelain and the crystal growth was achieved by using a crystalline glaze.
Each piece made with crystalline glazes is unique because the crystals grow as they please. The first step in the process is dipping the piece in a crystalline glaze, then the piece is fired in the kiln. It is during the firing process when the crystals begin to form. You never know where the crystals will grow, how many will grow, and what stage of growth you will end up with on the finished product.
Our pieces are handmade by ceramic artist and teacher, Thomas Mackenzie Brown. Thomas studied the art of ceramics during his college career and knew it was his passion early on. He has been throwing on the wheel for 43 years and is a featured artist in multiple galleries across the California coast.
