This piece is 5"wide x 1.75"high. The sweet, small bowl with an intense, matte blue glaze, while hard to capture in a photograph, has flecks of sparkle and a velvety finish. The striking Cobalt color prompted someone at a craft show last year to tell me that Cobalt comes from outer space! Amusing, but is that true? Confirmed by a geologist that visited my booth later that same day. Cobalt does not occur naturally on earth but comes in the form of meteorites. I hope that is true as this glaze does feel magical and other worldly.
Like all my work it is porcelain, thrown on the pottery wheel and fired to 2267 degrees. Each piece is one of a kind and every glaze is made from dry materials in my studio.
My work is primarily decorative, meant to be enjoyed by the eye and the heart.
