These bowls are made of porcelain clay and finished with glazes developed by Richard following many trials and tests. Most bowls are on a deep footring that elevates the form to show both the profile and the interior.
Richard makes these porcelain bottles on the wheel and each is unique. They have balloon-like bodies and narrow elongated necks. The dark stripes of bronze/gold pigment helps to define the form at the neck and shoulder.
Richard makes mugs, espresso cups and goblets for when you fancy a drink as well as jugs to pour from. He also makes sake flasks with a set of small shot ‘glasses’.
Richard has around 35 glazes in his current repertoir. They are all available on small 9cm bowls and most can look great scaled up on larger bowls and bottle forms. The shiny ones are best for any wet or oily food use, while the satin matte glazes are good for salt and pepper, keeping jewellery in and many other uses.
