This green ceramic scroll bowl was handmade by Nelson ceramic artist Royce McGlashen.
Beautifully presented in a box, this bowl resembles a waka (canoe), and has a koru at each end which symbolises an unfurling fern frond, new life, and new beginnings.
Royce is well known as one of New Zealand’s leading potters. He qualified as a Master Potter in 1971. He is a member of the International Academy of Ceramics (Geneva) and in 1989 received an M.B.E. for his services to pottery in New Zealand.
At his studio in Brightwater near Nelson he produces a wide range of tableware, ceramic art pieces and paintings. Hand decoration and interesting surface treatments have always been a feature of Royce’s work. He has won many awards and his work is held in numerous public and private collections.
