In contrast to the previous three objects, this bowl was built inside a mould rather than onto one. To prevent the work from adhering, I put a mixture of 50% aluminum oxide and 50% kaolin on the inside of the mould. After construction, the work was fired together with the mould. Working this way, there was no need to go through riscy procedures in order to release the work from its mould. Another important aspect in which this bowl differs from the previous three is the multidimensionality of the individual elements. These geometrical shapes have been decorated with abstract signs that breath an Arabic atmosphere.
