Black Poppy Transferware Footed Bowl
This is a great coffee table bowl because when you walk up you see the interior and when you sit down you can appreciate the silhouette. I threw this piece in three sections in porcelain clay then joined them when they were still wet. Decorated with a black poppy transfer arabesque motif, the classic ice crackle glaze on the interior gives a depth to the surface. The metallic rim and foot make this a signature piece. Quite heavy with the distinctive asymmetry of handmade. Food safe, but this is really a decorative piece. 14.5" wide by 5.5" deep. Knock out wedding or retirement gift. Signed, "Sullivan, Canada" on the foot rim.
