|Object Name||Bowl, Waste|
Wood-fired waste water bowl with pine ash glaze on both exterior and interior. The wood-fired kiln causes the glaze to turn green when it pools. As the heat melts the glaze it runs to the bottom of the piece, causing an ombre effect.
This waste water bowl sits atop a raised footring and has round body with a raised band running around the middle, applied after the initial throwing. The mouth opens wide, then the body nips in, just to widen again and narrow toward 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 greens, and grays.
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.
