This medium size stoneware bowl is a unique and unrepeatable piece. It is a work of high craftsmanship, of elaborate and careful design in all its details. It has a mixture of contrasting colors that makes this piece in something special.
It is a medium-sized container, appropriately sized for use with flower arrangements. You can use this to serve soups, salads, sauces, ramen noodles, etc. Or with dry foods, such as fruits, nuts, french fries or chips for chopping and dipping in sauces, etc. It has a capacity of three quarters of a liter (c. 1,5 pints) and a size of about 5 cm (2") high by 22 cm (c. 9") in diameter. The base is unglazed, it is something that is normal for handmade ceramic pieces. This is not a problem since the clay is vitrified and is practically waterproof. It is also polished so cannot affect the surface of the furniture if used properly.
This piece is made of stoneware, like the cups, mugs and tumblers of different sizes, and the stoneware bowls, plates, etc. All made to be used with food found in this store. Porcelain with a normal thickness walls and stoneware are the materials used to manufacture the restaurant and home tableware. That makes them food safe, microwave and dishwasher safe, and resistant to sudden temperature changes. There are other pieces like porcelain bowls or salad bowls that also share these characteristics. The interior has a glaze formulated to properly blend with the paste of the piece. So no cracking should form.
Porcelain is a harder material than stoneware, although it is more delicate to work with. It allows to make thinner walls and can be translucent. This makes it perfect for special pieces and lamps and not so much for everyday use ware as those of stoneware or porcelain with normal thickness walls.
I prepare myself the glazes with high quality industrial raw materials. They have balanced formulas so that they melt properly on the piece in the final firing. Thus they are transformed into coloured glass, they become in an inert material that does not be altered with the acids of some foods.
I glazed this piece with a bright brown glaze on the outside. On the edge a cream and matt turquoise blue and in the center a mottled black surrounded by cream and red. In the kiln the glazes melt and mix creating unique and unrepeatable effects. The blue of the border melt and mix with the other colors creating a light blue and cream mottling.
Below you can find other pieces of similar size and capacity that might interest you as well. I select them because they have similar or contrasting glaze or color combinations. This way you can create sets of pieces that are related, or on the contrary, select others that make contrast.
