This small, delicate piece by Karl Scheid has been rendered in a pure color scheme, its matte glaze almost entirely unmarred by patterns or irregularities. The shape of the piece is that of a double-walled bowl. A rim between the black outer wall and inner bowl is marked by a band of unmarked white. The bowl’s silhouette is smooth but gently curved, flaring out just slightly at the rim.
