Studio pottery bowl, unknown maker, possibly Scandinavian.

Post by toomanypots on November 2nd 2017, 2:24 pm

Hi folks, trying this in another category with the hope that someone may recognise the incised mark, which reads AJA.
It may not be Scandinavian, though a few people that have viewed it believe that it might be.




Many thanks, John.

Thank you Oli, I'll have a dig in this direction and will see if anything emerges.
Much appreciated.

Can't help with the mark, but it's a beautiful bowl.

even the underside is lovely, it looks like reduction firing

Excuse my ignorance Dan, but what does reduction firing mean? Is it as obvious as the temperature being lowered towards the end of the process?

not temperature but oxygen supply which tends to give that metallic shine and vibrant colours.
I think the oxygen is actually pulled out of the clay body of the pot to feed the flame.
Raku also uses reduction but immediately after firing while the pot is still red hot.

Thank you Dan, that is much appreciated.
The underside is quite coarse in places and the glaze is somewhat thin where it has taken; a little Raku esque in the places it hasn't taken so well.

the best way to learn about all that is to attend a big pottery fair and talk to the potters .there you can see and feel the difference between all the potting techniques.
I have often turned up an hour before the punters so I can talk without buyers interrupting
