Bowl, by Irene Bell

This earthenware bowl was made by the Scottish artist Irene Bell in 1988.

The press-moulded bowl of white earthenware has been decorated with a female face using paint and sgraffito (a technique where lines are drawn through the white slip to expose the body).

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.
