Lovely squarish bowl made by Karen Erland, Norway. Grog filled clay, glazed inside. Simple decoration of squares front and back. 2 looped handles. Wood fired kiln.
Karen is the wife of ceramic artist Jens Erland, who is known for his modernist mixed media/ceramic installations and performance ceramic art: http://www.norwegiancrafts.no/issues/04-2011/manmachine/

In 1986 he and his wife, the ceramic artist Karen Erland, set up their own wood-fire kiln workshop, Smiå keramikk, in the town of Bryne, also in Jæren. Erland and his wife ran Smiå keramikk for twenty years, before moving the wood-fire kiln to a larger workshop in another part of Bryne.

Not sure of the age - some time in the 1980s-2000s (apologies if it's a little too modern for this section).

Stamped KE monogram
Approx 6" dia. 3" high
