Straight sided shallow bowl

by Kirsty Adams Ceramics



This piece is both functional and aesthetically striking to enhance a kitchen or dining area.

The bowl’s large expanse of creamy gloss glaze shows off the oxide and bronze lustre rim detail.

Kirsty uses a Japanese comb tool to create and enhance textures during throwing. The high gloss glaze references clay in its wet state, while the bronze and oxide rim brings an impulsive fluidity to the finish. Each piece strives for individuality, through both making and firing. These bronze lustre rim studio porcelain pieces are reminiscent of simple classic Japanese forms. Specific brushes are used to highlight detail and line. The pieces are fired three times to achieve a gloss glaze and contrasting oxide and bronze lustre rim detail.

I originally trained at Brighton Art College. However, my main inspiration and methods of working were developed whilst training on the potters's wheel in Japan.

I became particularly inspired by the Oribe style of glazing and this influenced her subsequent work.

With a delicate style of throwing and combined poured and dipped glazing technique, I have created a unique collection of studio porcelain. Each piece contains an element of spontaneity and individuality, with refined throwing lines combined with the incidental marks and story of the glazing technique.

My bronze lustre rim studio porcelain pieces are each fired three times to achieve a creamy gloss glaze and oxide and lustre rim detail. My tableware pieces have their origin in the simplicity of classic Japanese ceramic forms. They are glazed with a dolomite and tin satin glaze and a dipped cobalt blue rim. I have also developed a range of tableware pieces with a gloss finish and delicate copper green rim.
