I made Verde Carved Lidded Casserole in two parts on the potter’s wheel. The bowl has a 36oz or 1Qt capacity. Verde Carved Lidded Casserole has a trimmed foot so it sits up off of the table, which is helpful when the dish is hot. I carved a star design in the lid which adds beauty to the piece. The lid is seated in the galley of the bowl.
I glazed the inside and outside of the bowl with overlapping green and cream glazes. The lid is green that breaks to a natural clay color across the carved star pattern.
The bowl is 8″D and 3″H.
I fire to 2200 degrees F so yes, you can bake in it! Stoneware is a durable and strong ceramic (fired clay). It does not like extreme and sudden changes in temperature, so, when reheating leftovers from the fridge, be sure to put the cold dish in a cold oven and warm them up together. Or, you can let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before putting into a pre-heated oven.
