This collection of space-age bowls, from extraordinarily Dutch artist Olav Slingerland, are exquisitely beautiful and use terra sigillata - a refined clay slip that produces a soft sheen - on the exterior and vivid, high-gloss glazes on the interior.
The 'Dot Bowl' uses an off centre focal point from which the glazes radiate, becoming more translucent as they reach the edge of the indent. The use of lustrous tones of orange, egg yolk and cobalt blue juxtaposed with the soft satin white exterior is visually arresting and slightly unearthly.
'Flow' uses curvaceous planes to hypnotise and draws the eye across the profile of this remarkably piece. The sculptural beauty of the form is highlighted by the intense blue of the interior - it feels like looking into deep water!
