These vessels are a new twist on some of my tried and true forms. The bright orange glaze comes from a helmer shino that really makes the sage green glaze stand out. While I get more control than if I’d woodfired these, the shino is still very picky about the amount of reduction it gets when I’m firing these, so still more to learn with it.

Variation of Leaf Boat Bowls
When the customers asked for these bowls without the “frond” I was a little miffed as that is what makes the leaf bowls unique, but after making these two, I found they could have just as much personality with their off-centered shape and wavy sides. Handles aren’t for everyone and this handsome set will probably survive dishwashers (both human and machine) as well as fit into the cupboard much better without. $140 for this set.

This shows the slight variations in each form — an undulating wall here, a more bent curl there. These are approx. 12″ x 7″ x 4.5″ – $65 each.
