Microcrystalline Chawan

Our microcrystalline chawan stoneware bowl was thrown quickly on the wheel by artist Austin Danson. The goal of this chawan was to have as little interference as possible in the process of forming the clay - one could say this chawan sprang into existence of its own accord. Crafting a chawan in such a manner is difficult - instead of keeping the clay centered on the wheel, the artist must know exactly when to stop the clay before centrifugal force destroys the bowl. The crystals featured on the bowl organically grew in the kiln, giving it an earthy elegance.
