A beautiful handmade yellow and green stripey hand painted snack bowl. 9cm across the opening by 7cm high. The perfect size for that naughty bowl of 10pm icecream - yep, i know, me toooooo ... Hand thrown ( read back story below), trimmed, dried, painted with underglaze, coated in a clear food safe glaze then fired in my kiln to 1280c This bowl has some imperfections and flaws (like me) but it is totally unique, one of a kind and would make a great quirky gift...

Back story:
Several years ago, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a pottery wheel at my local recycle centre. I have always been a hand builder with clay but bought it home anyway and stored it in my studio. Fast Forward to these crazy isolation times and I pulled the wheel out, dusted it off and started her up. I have been watching YouTube videos every day and also attended a throwing class but wow… I am finding it difficult! Anyhow, due to perseverance and my complete determination born out of stubbornness I set myself a challenge. You can follow along at www.instagram.com/100bowlsoffrustration. I am going to throw 100 bowls. It has been said that in order to centre and throw the perfect bowl you just need to sit with ball upon ball of clay and just keep practising. I am also aware that each practice bowl should be cut in half to see where your wall strengths are!! Well, my sense of achievement in pulling that first little bowl was huge and there was no way I was cutting that little blighter in half!!! I just carried on throwing. Each bowl I have made so far is unique, wonky, totally ‘rough around the edges’, uncentred, uneven, badly trimmed, imperfect (aren’t we all?!) etc etc BUT they are quirky and still ‘bowl like’ so I am branding each one with my curse of exasperation ‘Fuck’… this is the word I mutter EVERY TIME I throw a bowl, start to pull it up and it is wonky. I am also spending time hand decorating each bowl with mandalas, spots, patterns and general gorgeousness to try and keep the eye off the wonk!!!! I think they would be perfect on an adult grazing board, to hold little bits, to eat ice cream out of or just to sit and be looked at! Thank you so much for reading. If you are considering buying one of my ‘Fuck bowls’ I thank you. You are purchasing a bit of me, my personal challenge, my art practise, and giving me the momentum to carry on.
All of my bowls are unique, wonky, useful and robust.

Can be picked up from Perth if you're a local :)

Midfire clay and glazed to a food safe finish. However, it is handmade and as such needs to be looked after. It can go in the dishwasher but it would rather be gently handwashed...
