Italian term or phrase: porcellana tinta in pasta
Ciotola per riso e salse in porcellana super sottile tinta in pasta di colore marrone scuro.

Bowl for rice and sauces in super fine XXX dark brown porcelain.

I found "artificially tinted in the mass" but it is not suitable for my context. Is there a shorter and more elegant way to say it?

TIA

in dark brown super fine porcelain


Explanation:
why translate the "pasta"? does it give any extra information? I ask this as a genuine question (I'm rather ignorant about porcelain!)

fine porcelain rice bowl decorated with brown slip


Explanation:
As porcelain is white in colour I don't think the meaning of your sentence is " dark brown porcelain". I think it means that the fine porcelain bowl is painted with dark brown (probably dark brown "slip")


"The tea bowls of the Jin dynasty varied from the black stoneware, which were decorated with brown ***slip*** and black glaze giving it an oil spot appearance, to the Jun ware of simple form and value"

"398 A Yorkshire creamware cylindrical mug, ***decorated with brown slip*** and concentric bands, c.1800, 16cm" (see 1st link - includes picture)

"The small blue and green porcelain vase by Don Davis is decorated with ***slip trailing"*** ( 2nd link - also includes pic.)

GLOSSARY DEFINITION OF SLIP

Slip - diluted wet clay, used to stick handles, etc. on to the body of a pot/ ***potter's clay reduced to a liquid batter, used for coating, or decorating pottery***

Porcellana
Si distingue principalmente in porcellana dura e in porcellana tenera.
La porcellana dura (originaria della Cina e diffusasi in Europa a partire dal tardo ‘500) ha grande compattezza, impermeabilità, ***colore bianco*** .....(www.storiaecultura.it/cornucopia/supporti/glossa3.htm)

I'm no expert but used to attend pottery classes and remember that slip was used to decorate pots.

porcelain with coloured body


Explanation:
As far as I know the ceramic production, "pasta (impasto)" here means so called ceramic body made of the porcelain-based mixture. It's then usually coated with glaze. There are hence two types of colouring the products: paints can be added into the body or a glaze can be coloured.
