We had lots of fun with 'R&D' to get to the final bowl choice for a New Zealand film project last year.

Using New Zealand clay, we made 30 antique style noodle bowls for the scene with washed blue interior and worn white exterior.

High firing created the effects we needed in this instance.

We also enjoyed making a series of vessels and bowls recently for an international film project & after much experimentation with glazes and layering, we settled on a green that met the brief.

*The fundamental principle of the ‘strawman fallacy’ results in the original position held by one party becoming distorted by a second party. Used to misinterpret, distract or avoid, the second party will then pretend there is no difference between the two versions.
