The voice of clay
These ceramic singing bowls are entirely hand thrown and finished by ceramic artist Laurent Merchant. The sound produced by the bowls is the result of many different elements, among them is the particular combination of clay and glaze selected. The black glaze being of singular importance. The shape is what forms the voice of the bowl, the dimensions, depth, diameter but also thickness are what will determine the pitch or frequency. The actual note is only revealed once the bowl is fired. At that point nothing more can be altered.
