Miniature Tea Bowl with small Bird


An intimate and highly delicate piece of ceramic art by Sarah Dalton – the form of which takes inspiration from the traditional miniature tea bowls of the Far East. The fine white earthenware provides an excellent surface for her intricate artwork; created using a combination of underglazes, oxides and engobes (with satin matte overglaze). The elegant painted bird and branch-work, set against a backdrop of wild landscape aims to invoke the atmosphere of the Northumberland Hills in which Sarah works. A tiny pool of pale amber glass fusion adds an extra feature to the base of the interior. The artist’s initials are inscribed into the base.
