    Handmade One-Off Design from Rowena Gilbert Contemporary Ceramics Coast Series #2.

    Aquamarine, Turquoise & Blue Ceramic Bowl with Free Style Decoration Inspired by Tropical Seas

    All pieces are individually hand made by Rowena Gilbert in her Brighton studio and have her signature mark on the base. Rowena was selected to become a member of The Sussex Guild of Professional Designer Makers in 2016, was a finalist for the Craft & Design Selected Awards: Ceramics in 2013 and in 2011. She graduated in 2002 with a BA (Hons) Three Dimensional Crafts (specialising in Ceramics). In the same year she won "The Best Up & Coming Local Artist Award, Brighton & Hove" having set up in a ceramic art studio as a full time artist, designer and maker . Rowena continues to develop and produce striking contemporary ceramics for numerous galleries and exhibitions nationally and internationally.

    made from:

    The bowl shape is originally turned in wood and a plaster mould is made from this wooden model. A fine cobalt blue clay slip is poured into the plaster mould, and then poured out after a given time to produce the clay body of the bowl. When the clay body has dried to a leather hard state it is removed from the mould.

    Coloured clay decorating slips are then made by mixing different percentages of various metal oxides and body stains into a fine white clay slip. The coloured clay decorating slip is brushed onto the leather hard clay body while the bowl is turned on a hand wheel. Each layer has to dry sufficiently before the next layer is applied, building up the different colour layers over time.

    The surface decoration is created using various sgraffito tools when the clay bowl is in a leather-hard state again. The bowl is then left to dry out completely and is bisque fired in the kiln.

    After this firing has cooled, Rowena glazes the inside with a transparent gloss glaze, then masks areas on the outside of the bowl, glazing unmasked areas with a matt glaze and then, the masked areas with a different gloss/matt glaze. The bowl is then fired again to 1160°C with an hour long soak at the top temperature.

    All pieces are individually hand made by Rowena in her Brighton studio and have her signature mark on the base. They are all high-fired ceramic.
