I lean towards “Functional Pottery” that is useful and serves a purpose. Creating pieces that people can use every day, especially for the home, can be very fulfilling. I love the idea that it’s not just sitting on a shelf looking pretty (although I like to make those too). I threw this plate and bowl without planning to make it a set. By glazing the pieces similarly I was able to connect the two designs. I used an oatmeal glaze allover and then dipped one side of each piece in an amber glaze.
