Small Turquoise and Brown Round Bowl by Emma Williams
- Unit Price
A strikingly beautifully thrown black clay ceramic bowl with very unusual matt glaze in shades of turquoise. The inside is decorated with a white crawl glaze giving a highly textured surface.
The bowl measures approximately 10cm diameter by 6cm height.
Emma makes decorative low fired ceramic bowls and brooches in her Nottingham studio from black & red clays using the press-moulding process.
Following a biscuit firing to 1000oC, she dips, pours and brushes on a range of glazes, including a vibrant matt turquoise barium glaze and textured 'crawl' glazes (so called because they pull or 'crawl' away from the clay surface as my electric kiln heats up to 1055oC) to create colourful and tactile surfaces.
Emma draws inspiration for her work from observations of the natural world she has absorbed throughout her life - from childhood memories of seaside holidays spent beachcombing and rockpooling, to things she sees around her from day to day such as lichen growing on a stone wall.
Emma graduated in 1999 with a BA (Hons) in Decorative Arts from Nottingham Trent University.
