This unique porcelain bowl was hand-thrown by Carl-Harry Stålhane in around 1975. The experimental piece, made from feldspar porcelain, features  a deep oxblood glaze with highlights of cobalt and contrasting areas of white. The thin, hand-turned porcelain walls of this highly decorative piece have buckled organically in the kiln, contributing to the sense of a handmade experimental object. 

Remarkably, the bowl retains its handwritten certificate, which is signed by Carl-Harry Stålhane himself. The certificate is not only a confirmation that the bowl is unique, but also details the type of ceramic, the type of glaze, and the temperature at which it was fired. The information included on the certificate supports the notion that the piece was produced as an experiment. The certificate carries the number 'GEO 34', which corresponds to the bottom of the bowl. 

When Carl-Harry Stålhane left Rörstrand in 1973 he founded Designhuset, an experimental workshop based in Lidköping, Sweden, and it's here that this object was produced. The workshop was active for 15 years and produced unique hand-thrown objects alongside the production utility homewares and figures. There was an emphasis on experimentation at Designhuset; Stålhane's unique handmade objects were thrown from various clays and decorated with innovative glazes.
