I made Taos Open Bowl Set on the potter’s wheel. Each bowl has an open form, with a graceful inner line, flat ledge, and slightly beaded rim. Flat foot. Light weight and durable.
The “Taos” glaze is a technique I have developed for layering 4 different glazes. I have made and used the floating blue glaze for years and I continue to use it as the mainstay on many pots. But for this combo, I dip half the piece in the blue glaze. It’s blue blue when it’s applied more thickly and a midnight dark blue with areas of brown when applied thinly. A tricky glaze in some ways! After applying the floating blue, I dip the other half of the piece in a copper green that I make. This is a very stable and consistent glaze. No tricks. Next, I pour a homemade cream rust glaze in a couple of areas. Then it’s flinging, trailing, and blotching a red gold glaze over the surface to pop the blue and enhance the overall surface. Each application is slightly unique and also consistent because I have learned the hard way what works and what doesn’t!
Use Taos Open Bowl Set for oatmeal, soup, or salad; stir fry or cereal. Use it as a serving bowl at the table or for snacks. Bowls seem to have an endless use.
