Miniature Tea Bowl with Barn Owl


With a form that takes influence from the traditional miniature tea bowls of China and Japan, Sarah Dalton has created a highly evocative piece of ceramic art – . The fine white earthenware provides the perfect surface for Sarah’s creative artwork; accomplished using a combination of underglazes, oxides and engobes (with a subtle satin matte overglaze). The intricately painted owl set against a backdrop of wild landscape aims to invoke the atmosphere of the Northumberland moors where Sarah lives and works. The landscape projects right into the interior which also features an atmospheric pool of slightly crackled tinted glass. The artist’s initials are inscribed into the base.
