I made Purple Sunset Serving Bowl on the potter’s wheel from a tan stoneware clay and then trimmed a slight foot which lifts the bowl off the table slightly.  It’s a low open bowl with a clean line and beaded rim, to help protect it against chipping.

After I bisque fire the bowl, I proceed to glazing.  The “Purple Sunset” glaze consists of 3 overlapping glazes.  First I dip about half the plate in a floating blue glaze which I make.  Next I dip the remaining portion of the plate in a purple matte glaze I also make, leaving a gap between the two glazes.  Then I carefully pour a red gold glaze between the two glazes and slightly over the seam of the first two glazes.  I finish off the pattern by daubing “clouds” over the purple with the red gold glaze.  Sometimes I leave the purple as an open space.

When I look at the glaze results, I hear that Neil Young song, “Unknown Legend”.  The chorus goes, “Somewhere on a Desert Highway…she rides a Harley Davidson…”
Haha.  The glaze also makes me think of an Arizona sunset.

Bowl is well-balanced, medium weight, sturdy, and durable.  Serves up salads, hot or cold side dishes, and looks great on display.  Start your collection of Purple Sunset pattern.  Makes a great wedding gift, housewarming gift, anniversary gift.

Purple Sunset Serving Bowl is 9.25″ Diameter x 2.25 High.

Oven and dishwasher safe.
