A sizeable hand-thrown and hand-glazed bowl designed by Olle Alberius for Rörstrand, Sweden, circa 1965.

The ribbed surface of this unusual piece is reminiscent of Alberius' famous 'Bamboo' series, however the glaze, rim, and production method differ. 

This shallow but generous bowl features a soft yellow celadon glaze, with areas of blue, grey, and green. This piece offers an insight into the designer's experimentations with translucent coloured glazes. 

The subtleties of the many wondrous colours in this unique piece make it perfect backdrop for foods when entering guests. For instance, deep purple Kalamata olives couldn’t look better in anything else!
