This medium size stoneware bowl with a floral shape 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 colors and a crackle base glaze that give it a touch of vintage or antique piece.
It is a flower shape medium-sized container, appropriately sized for use with dry flower arrangements. Or with non-liquid foods, such as fruits, nuts, french fries or chips for chopping and dipping in sauces, etc. It has a capacity of more than a half of a liter (1 1/2 pint) and a size of about 11 cm (c. 4 1/2") high by 15 cm (6") 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 bowl is made of stoneware with chamotte, a kind of sand made with a refractory material that gives it more resistance and texture. Unlike the others 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.
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.
For these crackle glazed bowl I cannot certify that it is liquid food safe and microwave and dishwasher safe. It is better to wash it by hand because of the type of crackle it has that can be affected by sudden changes in temperature.
I have glazed this piece with a special crackle transparent glaze over a dark green in the outside and a dark blue in the inside. In the kiln the glazes melt and mix creating unique and unrepeatable effects over the creamy white of the stoneware clay.
