This bowl is a smaller version of the medium creamy orange mocha diffusion bowl. It has many uses as a small portion dish for snacks, sauces and dips to name a few. It measures approximately 2.50 inches high and 4.5 inches in diameter.
The surface design at the bottom of this bowl is created by using a technique known as mocha diffusion. It is a chemical reaction created when an acid and an alkaline are placed together on the surface of the pottery during the leather-hard stage of the clay. The process is accomplished by using apple cider vinegar mixed with a colorant that is dropped or brushed onto the akaline slip. When the two elements meet they spread and flow across the surface creating a unique design that recalls elements of nature. It is not possible to control the direction of the acid mixture as it etches a distinctive pattern winthin the slip, so no two patterns are ever alike, making this bowl a unique addition to your pottery collection.
