If you’re a rule-breaker, and you like to eat on the couch instead of at the table, you’ll appreciate the form of this bowl. The bottom fits in the palm of your hand, and the tall sides help keep food in the bowl, rather than on the floor. This design and wisdom comes from my own personal experience.
This ware is made from an earthenware clay and features bright vibrant colors. This piece is crafted over a bisque hump mold. Once off the mold the piece is hand-worked to alter the surface and shape. The piece is then glazed and fired to 2100°F. After firing, the piece is sandblasted and wet/dry hand-sanded for a soft, smooth feel. Each hand-made object is unique.
You'll be please to know this ware is food safe and is also dishwasher safe, though I recommend a combination of the dishwasher and hand washing, since the nature of handmade pots are less durable than industrial. People have been known to put my earthenware pots in the microwave, but it is not recommend it because it is the iron (metal) that is giving the clay its rich red color. This high iron content could cause pots to crack in a microwave. I do fire my clay hotter than normal earthenware in order to vitrify the body and make it as durable as possible.
