Throwing bowls

February 20, 2014

A side project of mine this academic year, is to improve my throwing skills. I find bowls to be a perfect starting point for me when throwing, as they are so versatile. All shapes can be functional, from dip pots to carrot stick holders, medium soup bowls to big pasta bowls, all different proportions are useful and beautiful.  Bowls are also a great surface for decoration and glazes testing; whilst a test tile is convenient at a glance, the curved face of a bowl can offer a greater insight as to how a glaze will perform on the round. Here are a few of my thrown bowls, and yes, commissions welcome!

All bowls are thrown in either Modelling clay or Crank (Raku bowls) Earthenware and Raku glazes.

Some are turned, but most are just cut from the wheel and fettled. The extra one here is a smoke fired bowl with a tin glaze on the inside!
