I made Midnight Blue Berry Bowl with Saucer on the potter’s wheel. The bowl has a trimmed pedestal foot to elevate it in the saucer and allow for drainage. I make the saucer shape conform to the shape of the bowl, with a flattened rim which makes it easy to grasp when carrying the set. The is seated in the saucer and rides well.
Rinse and serve berries and fruits in same bowl. I trimmed a foot on the saucer. Serve berries, cherries, or other fruit to the table without dripping. I keep my berry bowl in the fridge and I turn the saucer upside down over the berries to cover the top. But you may also keep the bowl on the saucer. It’s well-balanced and I find it easy to pull out of the fridge without bobbling it.
Use as a colander for hot or cold foods. I have one customer who puts a head of lettuce in the bowl upside down and the bowl helps to keep the lettuce fresh longer. Great idea!
Midnight Blue Berry Bowl with Saucer I start with a single layer of my floating blue. When applied in a single layer the glaze fires to a cobalt or midnight blue. For a slightly different twist, I sunk the lower portion in my copper green glaze and the splashed and trailed cream over the surface, both inside and out. For the final touch, I dip just the rim in a red gold glaze. The result is a subtle, midnight blue body with a pool of bright green at the bottom.
