Rimmed Persian Bowl
Created by Suzanne Crane
These complex bowls are wheel thrown stoneware, with the impression of a real botanical specimen pressed, in cameo fashion, in the center bottom of the bowl. The pattern radiating from the edges of the botanical circle out to the rim of the bowl is pressed, one point at a time, with a simple church-key. Red and black glazes, and a red iron oxide wash over the point pattern. Food and dishwasher safe, but best for dry foods.
