Collection: Berry and Bird Egg – Inner Flower Bowls

All the ceramic bowls in this collection were handmade by Raka Bandyo at the MSCR Warner Ceramics Studio in Madison, WI. Each bowl was wheel thrown using a mid-range oxidation clay body with granular manganese from Continental Clay and fired in an electric kiln. The decorations for these pieces were inspired by the Indian art of henna and each contains an inner flower. The glazes I choose to work with are bold and rich colors inspired by nature along with black for additional contrast. All pieces in this collection are food safe. Approximate dimension and additional descriptions listed below:
