Illustrated is a simple bowl, wheel thrown and slightly squared made out of stoneware glazed in an iron glaze and the decoration applied in rutile over the surface. It was the extra from a set of four, a fifth wheel, long since having found their way to a new home and this solitary bowl was snagged by my wife and has been part of our mismatched grouping of pots that we use on a daily basis. It may be different than many in the cupboard, but this one is home none the less.
