Palladium Elliptical Bowl

Ceramic Bowl

Created by Jean Elton
The form for this piece is fundamentally round except for the stepped protrusions that create the visually light foot. The protrusions are irregular so as to cause a controlled distortion in the firing process to a consistent elliptical shape.

Before the first of two firings, the artist uses liquid clay to create texture on the inside of the work, which is then fired to approximately 1800 degrees F. A metallic, palladium satin glaze is brushed on by hand over the entire piece.

The second firing to approximately 2100 degrees F results in a flowing, almost glass-like shape, where the texture on the inside causes discrete design punctuations over the slip trailing, while the outside is a continuous flow of glaze that breaks on the subtler contours of the shape. The work can be used as elegant serving ware (food, dishwasher,and microwave safe) or as purely decorative ceramic art.

The unique serial number found on the bottom of this and each Jean Elton piece is reflected on the certificate of authenticity provided.
