This is a set of 4 small bowls that were thrown on the potter’s wheel with stoneware clay.
The painterly effect is created by a sgraffito technique where layers of underglaze were painted on top of each other and then scratched off gently with a sharp tool to reveal the different color layers. It is inspired by the lights framing the buildings of the Boardwalk in Port Elizabeth. https://www.instagram.com/p/By5uGRAH-pc/?hl=en
The high firing caused the underglazes to crackle which creates this beautiful texture around the bowl. The inside of each bowl is painted with a bright yellow underglaze to represent the cheerfulness of walking around the boardwalk at night and watching the water light show.
The dimensions range from 7 to 9 cm in height and 11 to 13cm in diameter.
The weight varies from 390 to 511grams.
