Object Name Bowl, Waste
Description This oil-fired waste water bowl has a Tenmoku glaze that contrasts with the red edges showing through the glaze caused by a slip made with red clay. The interior of the piece is coated in a white slip.

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, just to widen again and narrow towards the bottom. The pine-ash glaze has cracks where it has pooled on the edges of the piece, as well as on the interior. The pieces is made up of grays, blacks, and reds. Almost all of the Tenmoku glaze around the footring has melted off in the heat, leaving the red slip visible. 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.
