This pottery bowl made of a very gentle clay has almost no glaze on its outer side. While burning at a very high temperature when the clay was ready to fuse, it has got a deep colour and some lustre on its surface. This adds to expression of delicately engraved design representing flowers and grasses on the overgrown summer field.
The inner surface of the bowl though without any narrative element produces the same impression of the flowering overgrowth in the summer midday due to the colours of glazes flowing down the walls.
This way a division of design and painting, located on the different sides of the bowl is accomplished, making an extra impression for the whole thing.
