I made Petal Bowl on the potter’s wheel from a white stoneware clay and then altered the bowl while it was still soft. When the clay was stiffer, I trimmed the upper portion of the bowl into petal shapes to go with the alterations I had made in the walls. Then I trimmed a foot.
After the bowl was bisque-fired, I dipped it in a blue-green Celedon glaze and fired the bowl for 32 hours in my wood burning kiln. The salt glazing in the kiln pushed the Celedon glaze to a soft light blue. Petal Bowl is petal smooth.
Use the bowl for individual cereal, soup, salad, or stir fry or serve chips to a small group. Fill with mashed potatoes, stuffing, peas, or some other favorite side to pass around the dinner table. Or simply use the bowl as a point of interest, displayed atop a table or shelf.
Makes a great wedding gift, anniversary gift, or housewarming gift.
8.5″ Diameter x 3″ High. Dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.
