I made Taos Finger Bowls on the potters wheel, throwing them “off the hump”. Because the bowls are petite, throwing a small section at a time from one large mass of clay on the wheel is easier and more efficient than working individually. And it’s fun to say.
Glazed in the technique I have developed and call “Taos”, each little bowl is dipped and splashed in blue, green, cream, and gold glazes. These are the colors of nature and most vivid in Northern New Mexico: Blue sky, Green mountains, Cream clouds, and Golden sunshine!
Sold as a stack of 3. 3-3.5″ diameter.
Use these bowls for so many things. They make great wasabi and soy sauce dishes. Or salt and pepper dishes at the table or stove. Keep your coffee warmer and use as a lid. Or cover your teacup while your tea is steeping and then plop the teabag into the dish. How convenient!.
My stepmother used one of these dishes to set out my fathers vitamins for the day.
Perhaps you need a keepsake dish for your jewelry. They hold votive candles nicely and can be set about your tub or dining table.
Why you can even drink saki from them with 2 other friends.
Taos Finger Bowls are easy to store, easy to engage, and easy to love.
What a great gift! Set of 3.
