Title
Bowl
Dimensions
width at rim 200mm x height 90mm
Comment
I have a very simple, direct approach to making. In the series that this bowl came from I was looking for a quietness. I am captivated by the rhythm of throwing and simplicity of marks made by the turning of the bowls outside form. I used a handmade Tenmoko glaze and downplayed the main component of iron. You can't have Tenmoko without reduction. And there is an uncertainty of elemental nature in this type of firing. A fine balancing plays out between control and chance.
