Made on the Mornington Peninsula by Monika Colic

Inspired by the operculum which is a swirly trap door of the turban snail shells that live in oceans.
Here is a decorative handbuilt ceramic bowl most suitable for storing jewellery or little treasures. Made from white stoneware midfire clay and altered to get the swirly texture. Outside the bowl is textured with vintage lace. Glazed with three different glazes to get the coastal look. Fired twice in an electric kiln over 1220°C. The bottom was left unglazed, coated with water proof liquid quartz.

Diameter approx - 20 cm 

Each bowl is hand sculpted and unique, I'm trying to keep the photo of the actual bowl in stock.

I recommend hand washing in soapy water and drying. Not suitable for microwave and dishwasher use.
