The edges of this piece remind me of a pie crust, pinched onto the rest of the bowl.
If you look at the right middle, the small crack is still there, not all the way through but still there so I guess this piece will be for me. But it's really wonderful to see a woven piece this large make it through the drying, bisque, and glaze firing. The color in this photo is more true to what the natural eye sees. Matt brown, black and burgundy with highlights of speckled tan. I was a little disappointed with this glaze which usually fires with more of the tan color to it. Not sure if I should have put more or less thickness on.
This is a smaller woven bowl. I purposefully left this clay unglazed because it fires such a beautiful brown black color. I envision this piece used for a fruit bowl or a bread bowl lined with a natural fiber napkin.
I make these natural dark clay pieces because I am drawn to their color and I hope someone else is also drawn to their natural simplicity. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
