Miniature Tea Bowl with Small Wren


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 canvas for Sarah’s artwork; accomplished using a combination of vibrantly coloured underglazes, oxides and engobes (with a subtle satin matte overglaze). The intricately painted Wren set against a backdrop of wild landscape aims to invoke the atmosphere of the North Pennine moorland where Sarah lives and works. The landscape art spreads into the interior where a serene pool of pale amber partially crackled glass adds further drama to the piece. The artist’s initials are inscribed into the base.
