Description

Porcelain story bowl with a group of mice in little boats.  The mice are handsculpted, the boats and bowl were pressed into a mold. This a decorotive piece of art an not to be used as an actual bowl.

{STORY BOWLS} Story Bowls tell a story, for this bowl I will let you make up a story. But a story bowl can also  tell your story, a life event, fictional story or tale, a news event, fantasy, anything.  So if you want a story which is special to you captured in porcelain in my whimsical style, just send me a message.

{PORCELAIN} Each piece is handmade by me in porcelain clay. Porcelain clay is different in composition from other clays, because of this it’s stronger. Because it’s stronger one can create much finer pieces; and where it’s thin, it’s translucent, also typical for porcelain. It needs to be fired at a temperature which is higher than average for other clays as well. It’s fired twice, once at a low temperature, after which I can apply glazes. And the second firing at the high temperature were it goes translucent. Natural porcelain is white, but one can add pigments or stains to the clay to give it other colours, the colour is then throughout. When a glaze is applied, it is only on the surface.

{CLEANING} Hand washing is always an option. If the item is all porcelain it can be washed in the dishwasher, be careful when stacking it.

{SHIPPING} All my items come in a giftbox. This giftbox will go in to a box with bubble wrap or other protective material for shipping. For this I use as much recycled boxes, wrap as possible, to safe the environment. As these this is of a kind piece, it is shipped by registered post.
