Black Toetoe On White 10cm Bowl
I am interested in the medicinal properties of plants, especially as they have been used by indigenous peoples around the world. In this series I am exploring Maori use of plants endemic to New Zealand. This porcelain bowl features a drawing of a Toetoe which is one of New Zealand's native grasses. Medicinally it has been used to treat burns, for diarrhoea and to stem the flow of bleeding.
Made from white porcelain, inside semi-gloss clear glaze with decal and unglazed outside.
Size 10cm diameter x 2.8cm high ˑ each piece comes boxed with an image of the design on the lid.
These pieces feature irregularities in both shape and form; this is part of the organic nature of the collection.
Designed in New Zealand by Jo Luping.
