This bowl is an example of later work by Michael Cardew. It was produced at the Wenford Bridge pottery in Bodmin, Cornwall, which he established in 1939. Traditional methods were used; stoneware clay blended from local materials, pigments and glazes mixed in-house, and two huge wood firing kilns. During the 1950's and 60's the pottery became established internationally as a centre for learning, and continues to produce useful wares today.
