Emerald Green Footed Bowl


impressed with the Artist's seal (on the base)

porcelain with an all-over emerald green glaze and bronzed rim

height: 10cm.; 4in.

diameter: 22.5cm.; 9in.

Executed circa the 1980s.

It is evident from looking at the piece that the flaring rim has split during the making process and has been infilled by the Artist. This is apparent in the large bronze run down the inside. Some light blemishes within the glaze and light crackle throughout in keeping with the Artist's manufacture as well as some light instances of pitting to the glaze. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals the aforementioned Artist's infills, which may possibly have later cosmetic additions.
