Bowl, entitled Honey Flowers, by Anne Lightwood

This ceramic bowl, entitled 'Honey Flowers', was made by the Scottish artist Anne Lightwood in 1986.

The bowl was made by taking sections of coloured clays, laying them flat like a mosaic, and then rolling them thin. The rolling affected the flower design, stretching and altering the shapes. The clay was then pressed over a mould to form the bowl shape.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
