A serving bowl thrown to a generous size, with an ash glaze on the inside and left unglazed on the outside. The outside shows the throwing marks, and is a glossy deep red-brown. with an area of golden wood ash on the rim where it faced the flames; the base shows the three wadding marks where the bowl was supported during the firing. The glaze on the inside has interacted strongly with the clay, with darker rivulets of iron running down the bowl, sometimes breaking through the surface to form a les glossy area. The glaze has pooled in the centre into a deep midnight blue.
The colour of the glaze varies with the lighting conditions, and the more golden colours in the photos are where the sun caught the glaze.
Note that there is one lump of ash near the bottom that is slightly raised, but fully glazed over, so it doesn't affect the use of the bowl.
