Stoneware grinding bowl by Pat O'Leary.

Wheel-thrown in black and buff stoneware clay, Pat O’leary's deceptively simple pieces are finished with opaque gloss and semi-matt glazes. O'Leary is interested in simple contemporary forms with contrasting finishes. Each piece is glazed only on the inside, while the raw clay finish of the exterior emphasises the clean lines and the shape and texture of each vessel.

These bowls and vessels hold decorative value singularly or in groups, with pieces relating to each other in scale and proportion. Each piece is entirely unique and is intended for use, whether as tableware, kitchenware or storage.

Of her work, O'Leary says, "as I am making, I like to imagine how the piece will be used and how it will be held."

The grinding bowl is an essential kitchen accessory. This elegant pestle and mortar can be used to grind salt, pepper, and spices or to mix spice pastes, salsas and dressings.

Available in jade glazes.
