Light and finely turned, with small decorative stamps inside.
If we have made our clay well, and with just the right softness, I really enjoy throwing these bowls. Enough clay is left in the base so that, when the bowls have dried enough, a footring can be ‘turned’ using our home made turning tools. A tiny flower stamp is impressed to make a pattern inside.
The smaller bowl is a charming version of the larger one, ideal for dips, desserts, nuts or olives.

It must be emphasised that A & J Young is a very small enterprise. The hand making process means that every pot will have its own idiosyncrasies. Small impurities in the clay, variations in the glaze colour and some crazing in the glaze are all part of the character of an individual pot and will not affect their function.
Please note that small variations may be noted between the photographs on our website and the pots you receive.
An almost clear glaze with some tin added to make the glaze slightly opaque. The painted colours show up very brightly on this glaze.
A fresh blue which can vary a little in different parts of the kiln. Stamps impressed into the clay show particularly well through this glaze and details are picked out in darker blue.
A classic bottle green which has a pretty brown fleck in it. Decorations are highlighted in cobalt blue.
