I made Taos Cereal Bowl on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. It has a trimmed foot and a beaded rim. The line is smooth, clean from center of the bowl to rim. The shape is open but has good depth to hold soups and salads as well.
I create my “Taos” glazed effect by overlapping 4 different glazes. Three of the glazes I make and 1 glaze I buy commercially. I have learned to dip, pour, fling, and trail in a combination that creates landscape, seascape, moonscape, and sometimes figurative motifs without overloading the piece. There is a unique melding to each bowl, cup, plate, and so on; which makes it easy on the eye when laying out an entire place setting; but there also is a consistency which creates a reliable aesthetic.
Use Taos Cereal Bowl for cereal, and also for salad, soup, small servings, or snacks. Use for potpourri. Use in the bath for cotton balls, soap. Use as a collection dish for odds and ends around the house. There are so many uses!
I fire all my dinnerware to at least 2200 degrees F so it’s safe for dishwasher, microwave, and oven.
