Finally figured this piece out, been thinking about for days. The replicated ash brings in the primitive look, as does the form itself. However, you are moving up the color spectrum from pastel to bright yellow. This shift in color is purely modern, abstract. By the book, it should not work by mixing period references. But it does, and does very well. The brushwork towards the top reminds me of a Picaso technique: not overly definitive.

Thank you so much for all your kind words.  It really means a lot considering that I'm fairly new to the pottery craft. I'm amazed that this piece has evoked such a response from you. I simply threw the bowl and thought how can I decorate this. I knew I wanted to show off the porcelain as this firing was the first time I've used porcelain. The yellow underglaze that is available here is very,very vivid as you can see, so I wanted to tone the effect down and decided to pair it with the black, as black and white is such a strong statement and the yellow would bring in some vibrancy to the piece.
