Thunderbirds - orange and blue bowls
Small, shallow bowls with a dynamic background, created by rolling out a mixture of coloured porcelain clays. Decorated with bright orange birds and celadon clouds. The marbled effect continues on the back and the front of each piece.
The pieces are glazed on one side, and food safe. They can be washed in a dishwasher.
They are a great size for serving ice-cream, desserts, cake, nibbles.
Size: 15 cm in diameter and 1.5 cm deep.
How are they made:
Throughout the year I collect porcelain offcuts from trimming cups and bowls - they wait, stored in buckets, for the big January reclaim. The clay gets remoisturised, than carefully layered and made into new slab with dramatic marbled effects.
The making process is a bit of a guessing game, an exciting one!
When I roll the slabs and decorate them, I can only assume the intensity and colour combinations of the finished pieces- each unique and impossible to replicate.
