Vitreous enamel on copper. The bowl is spun for me in Birmingham, and fired in a kiln multiple times to get the effect I want. This particular bowl is coated with powder enamel on the outside, fired, then the copper is cleaned. I then coat the inside and scratch the design in it. This is then fired again. The bowl is then fired at very high temperatures to enable unusual colours to develop – the pink, greens and golds are all a result of this rather than my applying different colours myself. This method is very ‘hit and miss’ and so every bowl I make this way is unique. Interestingly, the outside of the bowl starts off as black!
The rim and base of the bowl can be polished with Brasso or similar, and it can be hand washed in warm soapy water.
The bowl is 10.5cm diameter, and stands 5cm high.
First class post is included in the price.
