Maker's statement

This is rather unusual in its "decoration" perhaps because it is a containing shape and asks for different treatment from the open bowl shapes I make more often. It is an unusually deep and mysterious lustre, which I think goes well for this form.

Alan MBE Caiger-Smith, 17 April 1978
