To create a rice bowl that incorporates the chopsticks into the overall design.
This bowl is made in a puki with notchedlip. The bamboo is wax resist with copper river glaze. The bowl rests on a squareslab that has turned corners.
Other examples of rice bowls with
Paddled pinch form with turned corner saucer. The placement of chopsticks enhances the linear design of the glaze.
Hand pinched bowl with carved and sprig bamboo. Leaves of the bamboo hold the chopsticks in place. Saucer is carved and painted to match the design of the bowl.
Both bowl and saucer are wheel thrown with carved
antiqued koi fish in the interior of the bowl and a
textured, antiqued Koi holding the sticks in place. The
glaze is dry champagne (a semi-translucent glaze)
More examples of unusual bases to place rice bowls.
FYI – never cross chopsticks on the top of the bowl! Bad Feng Shui!
The placement of chopsticks is important.You want them to be decorative but also compliment the overll design.These examples are nature inspired where the leaves and tendrils hold the chopsticks firmly in place. When inserting sticks inside a curled piece of clay, you must remember that clay shrinks by 5% or more, so you must make the area a little bigger so your sticks fit through without too much maneuvering.
SO…..Where else can I put my chopsticks?
These sticks were placed in belt loops on the side of this sgrafittl bowl.
Chopsticks are stored under the bowl by piercing holes thorugh a large pedastal base. They could have easily have fit into the many belt loops surrounding the lip.
These wax resist bowls have been pierced to accommodate the sticks. You must make sure that holes placed in the bowl do not allow food to fall out.
Do my chopsticks have to be incorporated into my bowl?
Sculptural pieces that are separated from the bowl are acceptable, but must tie in with the design of the bowl so they look as though they “belong”.
“ I don't want to make a round bowl”
This pretty mishima rice bowl is made in a slab box shape with the chopsticks resting on a grooved lip
Rice bowls (plates) may also incorporate small sections that would hold condiments like wasabi, ginger, or duck sauce.
Traditional rice bowls are small with a footed bottom and exhibit shibusa.
