Tea bowl, Jack Welbourne
A small tea or breakfast bowl fired in a ‘blue grey’ glaze. After training in Cardiff and Gothenburg, Sweden, Welbourne set up studio in Cardiff, where he produces wheel-thrown stoneware in red Cornish clay, gas-fired using glazes mixed in his studio (sometimes using materials dug locally, combined with potash, chalk, iron oxide and flint). Jack is inspired by the concave curvatures of neolithic Chinese and early Korean clayware. About 12cm diameter and 5.5cm high.
