'Little Guardians' Porcelain Bowl
My little guardian designs stem from my many encounters with the Jizō figures of Japan and the comfort they bring at unexpected moments. This bowl is a nice useful size and could be used as a small breakfast bowl, or for burning incense or candles - simply add some coloured sand.
Porcelain, wheel thrown vessel, dipped in blue slip (liquid clay) then freehand carved to reveal the design and fired in an electric kiln. Coated in a clear glossy glaze, and then fired again to 1260 degrees. Food and dishwasher safe, although hand washing is recommended. Bottom unique design inlaid with blue slip (mishima).
A handmade piece - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
