Crab & Sea Shell Bowl
An exquisitely carved pattern of red coral, sea shells and crabs adorns this lovely bowl.
The center and rim are a mixture of ethereal shades of blue while softly rippled edges add interest.
This wheel thrown, functional work of ceramic art is created by impressing bas-relief images into the edge or lip of the bowl or vases. The images, called "roulettes" are hand carved on separate sections on porcelain. The sculpting of a roulette is done in reverse: all surfaces meant to protrude must be carved deep into the clay, and the left and right sides of the image must be flipped. Various stains and glazes are applied to high light the details and the piece is then fired.
Food safe and ready to be enjoyed; a great gift for lovers of the sea!
Measures approx. 12" in diameter
