Hare in the Moonlight, Bowls
'Hares in the Moonlight' bowls are made of white porcelain clay and intricately decorated with warm, slate grey and deep yellow slips for striking contrast.
These pieces are made using a combination of paper stencil, scraffitto and slip trailing techniques to gradually build up and reveal the design. Each piece is hand decorated with hand-cut stencils, each bowl is unique.
The decoration is applied to both inside and outside of the dishes; it's busy and dynamic.
Hare design is on the inside of the bowls; a pair of hares gazing into the fool moon.
These pieces are both nice to look at but also very tactile- you can feel layers of decoration under your fingers.
I like to think these pieces will be used frequently; they are fired to very high temperature, made using high quality clay and glaze, and meant to last.
They are dishwasher and microwave safe. Because porcelain clay does not like sudden temperature changes, please, do not use these in the oven.
Bowls will eventually come in three sizes (few test pieces available at the moment):
Extra large bowls are perfect for serving salads or as mixing bowls.
Medium bowls make a very special breakfast cereal, soup or stew bowl (they are slightly shallower than our tweet bowls);
Smaller ones are great for nuts, nibbles, dips or as keepsake jewellery bowls.
EXTRA LARGE BOWL 25 cm diameter and 15 cm tall
MEDIUM 17 cm in diameter and 5cm tall
