Descriptions
Description
With flaring, slightly rounded walls, this otherwise unembellished bowl is covered with a thick green glaze infused with crackles that thins at the bowl's rim and stops just at the edge of the foot. The underside reveals a short, circular footring with the same crackled green glaze on the interior. Remnants of spurs, which would have raised the vessel slightly during firing and prevented it from fusing to kiln furniture, remain adhered to the foot.
