Studio Potter Michael Hoyland U.K. Hand Thrown Bowl

Michael Hoyland U.K. Studio Potter Hand Thrown Bowl


Beautifully thrown and beautifully glazed, this very modern yet primitive bowl was thrown by Michael Hoyland of the United Kingdom. Made of a heavy, coarse-grained grey clay, the bowl’s interior is composed of swirls and blobs and spots on a chocolate brown background. The whole bowl except for the very bottom is topped with a clear glaze that’s very satiny to the touch and rises to a dimple in the center of the bowl. The throwing ridges are evident on the underside and Michael Hoyland’s mark, the conjoined initials MH, set into a rectangle with rounded corners, are impressed into the side of the bowl directly over the rim.

The bowl measures 9 1/2 inches across the top, tapering to a 4 1/2 inch diameter round base. It’s 2 1/2 inches high and weighs a hefty 2 3/4 pounds. It’s a very striking piece of hand thrown studio art pottery.
