If you love all things nature, you will appreciate the powerful intention and design aesthetic behind my ‘Fibonacci Fern Bowls’. Each one is hand made using the impression from a real fern leaf and inspired by the way the Fibonacci Sequence is represented by organic forms in nature.
Firstly, I position a fern frond onto a large slab of clay so the natural curve of the fern is represented. I then press the frond into the clay and then once the clay has become leather hard, I coax the clay slab into a curved bowl. Next, I gently peel the frond off and cut the edge of the bowl with sweeping curves following the intention of the Fibonacci energy.
Finally, I make a smaller fern frond in using the same technique as a foot for the bowl. This creates stability, but also offers a distinctive shape to the bowl when viewed from the side. I then use sgraffito technique to capture my own version of a fern frond on the underside of the bowl for an added design element.
I use stoneware clay fired to 1260 degrees, making each dish durable for functional purposes. All glazes are dishwasher and food safe. However please read the additional care instructions below.
Select from the following Fibonacci Fern Bowls:
Small – L19 x W19 x H11 cm
Medium – L26 x W25 x H14
Large – L28 x W26 x H15
Set – Large L32 x W33 x H15 and Small L19 x W18 x H9
Glaze Variation: please be aware, due to the handmade and unique element of each piece made, there will be slight variations in glaze colour and texture. Some items may be more olive green and some may have a more mint green tint. There may also be areas of rustic brown and charcoal grey breaking through in some areas where the leaf veins are more prominent. These colours are indicative of the variations you find in the real fern leaves and in any natural leaf formation.
Please treat as a bone china plate. Hand wash in order to retain the glossy finish of the overall glaze. This will also help to retain the integrity of the edges.
