Taking inspiration from traditional European Majolica pottery, this low terracotta bowl features a leather loop handle and is trailed in cobalt glaze, giving it a distinctive appearance.

Process

The bowl is hand-rolled using terracotta crank clay, before it is bisque fired. It is glazed with a thick tin glaze, which is decorated with trails of cobalt blue glaze. Silvia uses a slip-trailer to achieve the unpredictable results, resulting in the textured and dynamic surface pattern on her pieces.
