Porcelain bowl - Liz Palffy

Unmarked porcelain bowl with ash glaze and fluted internal surface.
Has a sandy surface in the middle which implies the ash glaze was not thoroughly sieved and washed.

If that bowl belonged to me I'd be sending photos of it to the Chinese specialists at Sotheby's or Christie's just on the very slight off-chance that it turns out to be Song Dynasty celadon ware. I only think this because I had a bowl with a slightly similar shape and glaze last year and the sale proceeds will be financing my studio pottery buying obsession for several years to come!

Thanks, I'll ask but I doubt it's Chinese. I asked on a Japanese collectors group and they said Studio. If it was oriental the sand in the centre would be on an unglazed surface and in separate little piles on which the next bowl would have rested in the kiln. Plus the foot would have been scraped smooth and unglazed. Plus the carved inner surface would be much better defined and regular (like David Leach's bowls).

The concensus from the Chinese collectors is its Studio Pottery inspired by a Chinese Song Dynasty, Yaozhou bowl.

Ah well . . . still, it's always worth asking. I had thought my bowl was modern Korean celadon ware, but the nice people at Sotheby's confirmed that it was the real Yaozhou deal. I was gobsmacked, especially as I had been serving crisps in it for years!

I think it's by Liz Palffy. Spotted another one on Pinterest with similar fluting and a red glaze inside
