Alexis Templeton Northern Night Serving Bowl with Blue Rim #F538

Alexis Templeton


The dramatic "Northern Night" surface is achieved by combining two quite different glazes.

The darker portion is an “oil spot” glaze — which when fired quickly to a high heat, causes iron components to burst to the surface and leave glistening or sparkling highlights. Layered on this is the blue crystalline glaze, which creates a luminescent Northern Lights effect when it melds in the kiln with the darker glaze.

Size: approximately 26 centimetres in diameter and around 8 centimetres deep.
