What people say: "This bowl is so light and lovely to hold. It's very well made and I love your use of bold colors!"
Bowls are my absolute favorite piece to make! They are so comforting, and versatile. And especially now as many of us navigate living and working from home.
An original, handmade porcelain bowl that was wheel-thrown, and a perfect size for a small or side serve. Before forming the bowl I mixed yellow mason stain into the clay by hand. Against this bright, cheerful backdrop of color, a whimsical image of king protea flowers is carved into the surface using a technique that originated in Korea known as mishima, in which I incised the drawing into leather-hard clay and then inlayed a black slip (liquid clay) into the illustrated lines. The protea bracts and leaves are then hand-painted on. A clear glaze is applied over the entire piece, except for the base.
Dimensions: This is a perfect all-purpose bowl! Use it for a snack or side serving of rice, soup, pretzels, soup. It comfortably holds a little more than 1 cup (8oz).
Size: approximately 5 inches (13cm) diameter at the rim and 2.5 inches (6.5cm) tall.
** Locally supplied fine porcelain clay and glazes
** Glazes used are food-safe
** Microwavable and dishwasher proof (although hand-washing is recommended to prolong the life of the piece)
** Suitable for both cold or hot contents
Please note: Handmade ceramic wares by their very nature are unique, inconsistent and may have some imperfections that do not detract from the beauty and function of the piece. Instead, these are indications of the maker's hand and I encourage you to embrace them. Because this piece is color stained by hand, there may be some small inconsistencies in the coloring. If multiple quantities of this piece is available, they may be similar but they won't be identical, as each one of them is individually made.
**Your piece may not be identical to the one shown in these images.
