Bowl, by Jason Shackleton
Add to album

This earthenware bowl was made by the Scottish artist Jason Shackleton in 1983.

The bowl has a lead glaze. Birds' heads are depicted in sgraffito (a technique where lines are drawn through the glaze to expose the body) on a slip trailed dots chrome background.

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.
