Joshua Tree Condiment Caddy is a popular item for anyone who likes to entertain even casually. I assemble 3 wheel-thrown bowls and then add a rolled and textured handle to finish it off. The result is an unusual, practical, and attractive addition to your table ware and service. Why not start a new collection in this glaze pattern?
This glaze technique, which I call “Joshua Tree”, starts with red iron oxide. I rub the outside of the bowls with red iron oxide. Next I dip the upper portion of the piece in red gold; and then I dip just the handle in green glaze. Lastly, I paint the rims of the bowls with the same green gold and add a few splotches of cream around the forms. And I line the bowls interiors with the red gold as well. The red iron oxide fires dark reddish brown and sets off the green gold perfectly. The green on the rims sheets into the gold.
Each cup is approximately 3” Dia. and 3” H.
Use Joshua Tree Condiment Caddy for your favorite combos or themes: Guacamole, salsa, sour cream perhaps. Black, kalamata, and green olives. Peanuts, cashews, and almonds. How about pretzels, chips, and chex mix. Or M&Ms, Jelly Beans, and Reeces Pieces. So many possibilities, so little time off!
And this handy ditty is lightweight and well-balanced. Caddies make great organizers for, say, cotton balls, cosmetic sponges, and towelettes. Makes a great thank you, wedding, housewarming, or holiday gift.
