This celadon bowl was made by Charles Vyse in his Chelsea studio near the Thames River in London. Vyse spent years trying to imitate the glaze secrets of the Sung Dynasty potters—one of the first studio potters to take up the challenge. He is perhaps better known in the US as a maker of figures, but he always threw pots and experimented with glaze effects. This bowl is seven inches across and three and a half inches high and has sixteen lobes. It is in perfect condition. His debt to the earlier Chinese potters is obvious.
