This beautiful decorative ceramic bowl has been handmade by Sophie Smith. The piece has a smoky black glaze on the outside, a cream, raku crackle glaze inside and Sophie has painted a bird sat on a hill design on the inside. It is finished with a platinum paint star in the the sky. A piece that will be adored for many years, its a wonderful gift for anyone who loves unusual art pieces.
Sophie Smith's quirky and creative ceramics are handbuilt using Limoges earthenware casting slip. She creates different textures and designs by cutting into the wet clay and by using slips as well as gloss and matt glazes. Finally Sophie adds gold and platinum precious metals to create an alluring finish, and each piece is fired three times. Her work has an emphasis on colour and fun!
