This bowl is wheel thrown in different combinations of dark and light stoneware with a touch of blue on its interior. Abigail plays with a palette of dolomite and transparent glazes. Each piece undergoes a further firing to be lightly gilded with (24 carat) gold lustre. All glazes are food safe. These vases is inspired by the female figures of Greek mythology.

London-based ceramic artist Abigail Schama came to pottery from painting. Abigail Schama’s hand-thrown, stoneware bowls tell stories through surface. Any bowl is basic and universal in its meaning. The process of building up and then turning the form creates their skin and character. Abigail relies on the processes of slipping and chattering; words which describe human contact. These pieces are about imprinting the imperfect, unexpected and unrepeatable marks of a human hand on the most primal and unchanging material.
'A glint of gold lustre can break up the clay’s earthy character while honouring the quirks in its skin and contours.'
