I made Taos Serving Bowl on the potter’s wheel with stoneware clay and then trimmed a foot which elevates the bowl.
Called ‘Taos”, the glaze combination achieves an overall effect that is reminiscent of the natural environment in Northern New Mexico. I start by dipping half the bowl in a floating blue glaze that I make. Then I dip the opposite half. Next I “trail” and pour a cream rust glaze over the seam. And for the final wow factor, I pour and daub a red gold glaze. When the red gold hits the blue it fires it up!
The melding of the glazes is somewhat unique each time, making groupings of dinnerware in the Taos glaze, or an entire place setting interesting. Not too matchy-matchy. The effects are consistent enough, however, to build your collection piece by piece. Perhaps some small bowls to make a set. Ah! Smaller bowls do sell out quickly but we gladly accept orders. Please reach out by email or by calling the studio directly.
Use this bowl for serving sides, pasta, or a large salad; or, display Taos Serving Bowl when it’s not in service. And it’s medium weight, balanced, and durable.
Makes a great wedding gift, anniversary gift, house warming gift, and will compliment any dining or serving table and home decor.
