This is a collectable larger decorative shallow bowl - made by Margery Clinton.  It is a more difficult to source larger bowl - and would be suitable for fruits or just for display as a piece of fine art pottery. 

It is a stunning piece and I wonder if Margery was looking at Monet's waterlily paintings for inspiration. The interior of the bowl has a gorgeous iridescent blue peacock lustre glaze. Then on top of this, we have beautifully hand-painted silver-grey waterlily pads - with tendrils forming a decorative pattern across the whole of the bowl surface. The whole design has been enlivened with a bright gold that has been used on the  very shiny flower heads and little buds. It is certainly a bit of a tour-de-force in the use of lustre glazes.   

It doesn't stop there - you turn it over and the base is not plain - but again decorated with painterly blue glazes and more flowers to match the interior around the rim. It has a shaped foot and stands nice and steady on it. It is signed in the silver colour on the base: Margery Clinton. 

A special piece of Scottish Art Pottery. Only one was made - so when it's gone... 

Dimensions: The diameter is just under 11 inches - and the height is about 3 1/2 inches. 

The little dish will be carefully packed and sent to you in the UK with Parcelforce24 - this will be applied to your order at the checkout. 

HISTORY: Margery Clinton (1931–2005) was a specialist in reduction lustre glazes. She studied painting at the Glasgow School of Art between 1949 and 1953 and was part of the Young Glasgow group, whose inaugural exhibition was held at the McLellan Galleries in 1958.

She undertook her postgraduate study at the Royal College of Art, London, researching reduction lustre glazes, an interest she later developed with great success.

She also undertook a number of notable architectural commissions later in her life, and her work with tiles was regarded as spectacular. She has been exhibited at the Tate, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Glasgow Art Gallery and the Royal Museum of Scotland.

An outstanding ceramic mural, The Physic Garden, commissioned for the tercentenary of Mary Erskine School, in Edinburgh, typifies her imaginative portrayal of medicinal herbal plants in six panels, in memory of the founder's husband, James Hair, an Edinburgh druggist. Appropriately, she chose Jonah and the Whale as the subject for a large decorative panel in the new Musselburgh Baths.

She was particularly interested in lustre glazing in Islamic art, and she travelled widely, attracting the attention of the Sultan of Oman and the King of Jordan. She executed commissions for both, and for the Duke of Edinburgh.

Currently, examples of her work are currently on display in the Scottish Design Galleries at the V&A Museum in Dundee, and the Museum of Edinburgh on the Royal Mile.
