The intricate pattern on the tea bowl was drawn and then hand carved. The tea bowl and lid were thrown on the potter’s wheel and then finished and assembled when partially dry. After a bisque firing to 1900 degrees, glazes are applied with bulb syringes to different sections of the work, giving a cloisonné-like effect. All work is made of stoneware clay and fired to over 2100 degrees.
The tea bowl holds 10 ounces.
Size: 4-1/4″ wide x 3-3/4″ tall
The clay and glazes are lead-free and food safe.
Many of the tiles and pottery at One Acre Ceramics are created in the Arts & Crafts style of the early 1900s. These designs are heavily influenced by classic Arts & Crafts iconography, including illustrations from the Keramic Studio, a periodical of the era.
