This time, after showing a series of agateware and mirikomi, time to get back to tradition.

Here is …. what exactly it is? It was intended as a shaving bell, but unfortunately the geometry changed in firing. The upper rim does not fit the scuttle, at least not the end. So, I consider them as two separate pieces. Or, soon will develop two other parts with the same design to cross-match them each other. Will see..

This is clay (C930) fired at 1250°C with Rustica Gold glaze. It gives the old look with traces of “cooper”. Looks like old metal bowl. But it is not. Matt finish.
