This is an extra porcelain bowl! The design wasn't really intentional....I shall explain. This bowl was extremely frustrating. I wasn't really happy with the way it turned out in general (it's really thick, I footed it poorly, etc). And then when I went to glaze it the blue/grey glaze I like was SUPER thick. I didn't really care until it started chipping off which is when I got REALLY annoyed, took a carving tool and scratched all the chipping sections off. And then I put clear in the cracks and voila. I think the mood of this piece is sort of numbing. When I look at it I think of storm clouds and tiredness. Maybe when I look at it I still see all the frustration I went through, but it's funny that that frustration somewhat translated into the art. I think that's both amazing and completely obvious.
