The Basket Bowl

The Basket Bowl is full of textures: the inner honeycomb, the ribbing around the inside, the coils and plait around the edge, the twisted handles... I wanted to capture the rustic nature of a country basket which could be filled with fruit and other natural produce. I chose to finish it with a wonderful glaze whose colour varies depending on the underlying texture as well as the way the glaze is applied. The blend of earthy brown, dried grass green, and deep petrol blue highlight all the different textures and create a harmonious whole.
