Medicine bowl ("bowls.")
This series of medicine bowls is shown on my FFCP site on the Saggar page.
These pots were some of the first medicine bowls I've made. They were well received and have encouraged me to make more now and then.
These bowls were fired inside the larger thrown pot that had another pot placed on top of it to fire. The materials used for reduction were the athol, or salt cedar needles from the Mojave desert and some trail horse droppings to give it some of the dramatic dark metallic grays.
The medicine is activated by the actuation of the person who acquires the bowl. I just make the bowls, I don't make the medicine.
