Hand thrown stoneware bowls glazed in pale blue or green with rust detail on the rim.

The name for these bowls comes from the Great Lakes region of the US that has suffered population decline, loss of manufacturing jobs and urban decay since the 1960s as a result of deindustrialisation and automation. It also happens to be where I grew up so despite all the negative connotations, I still have a deep fondness for it. The name also comes from the iron oxide - essentially liquid rust - that I brush on the rim of each bowl which melts and reacts with the glazes in the kiln.

Height approx 100mm width approx 150mm
