stoneware clay, stoneware glaze
This whimsical bowl, with three mice circling the middle, is made using the Nerikomi technique, which is pottery made from colored clays. The bowl was constructed inside out with mouse and seed clay cut outs, surrounded by coils. When you turn the bowl over, you can see that the colored clays go all the way through (last picture). It is a functional piece finished with a high fire food safe transparent glaze, but due to the slightly textured inner surface, is best if not used for liquids.
This stoneware bowl is 8" across and 2 1/2 " deep. It was a lot of work, so I will probably never make another one!Note: a fun gift for anyone who has a mouse in their house. . .
