|Object Name||Bowl, Waste|
Wood-fired waste water recepticle with Nuka glaze on exterior and brim. The interior of the bowl has only a white slip, made obvious by the difference in color. Where the glaze has melted off along the edges the gray color of the clay is visible.
This waste water bowl sits atop a raised footring and has round body with undulating curves. The mouth opens wide, then the body nips in, then there is a small ridge and it widens again and narrows towards the bottom. The pieces is made up of grays, browns and grays. Near the footring there is a two-inch wide area that appears to have lost all its glaze. There is a slightly rased spiral pattern on the bottom of the interior of the waste water recepticle.
Stamped maker's mark on the edge of the footring: "PR" with letters back to back so that they share a center line.
Custom box-lid contains a sketch of the bowl. Along the side of the image is the artist's signature and a Japanese seal. The outside of the box has the potter's name writtin in Japanese.
