Description

This handmade ceramic yarn bowl was thrown on my potters wheel using strong white stoneware clay. The spiral to thread your yarn through was carved out of the bowl whilst still damp. After being fired in my kiln the bowl was glazed in a duo of deep purple and sea blue reactive glazes. The effect of the two glazes merging together in the second kiln firing create this wonderful and unique mottled effect.

No two bowls will ever be exactly the same. The pictured item is the one you will receive.

Height: 95mm
Diameter at rim: 150mm

The ball of wool pictured is a 50g ball of double knit (not included), there is ample extra room for larger balls of wool.

All of my items will be well packaged prior to shipping, I’d hate for anything to get damaged in the mail. Happy to combine shipping, post worldwide and all of my items are made and ready for immediate dispatch.

How It’s Made

By Hand.

All of my work is handmade, predominetly on a potter’s wheel. Once the clay has been prapared the ball is transfered onto the wheel where the form is pulled. Once made, the peice is left to dry slightly overnight to a leather hard consistency before hopping right back onto the wheel to be trimmed with turning tools to remove any excess clay and refine the shape.

Once the clay has fully dried out after a week or two it goes into the kiln for the first firing – the bisque – where it will be slowly heated to 1030°c. The piece is then ready to glaze. Glaze is a slurry of different clays, chemicals and metal oxides which melt in the second kiln firing to create a glass-like surface, the metal oxides creating the colours. During this final firing the kiln will reach 1220°c.
