I made Verde Colander on the potter’s wheel from an iron bearing stoneware clay.  Full shaped with a trimmed foot and economical handles for easy lifting.  The rim is slightly beaded to protect from chipping in daily use.  Well-balanced, durable, and highly useful.

Verde is what I call the glaze combination of two glazes that I make:  copper green and cream rust.  First I dip the bowl in the copper green glaze with a motion that results in a valley of bare clay.  Next I dip half the bowl in the cream rust, filling in the valley and also overlapping the green.  The overlapping area forms a soft, mottled effect which often reminds me of cactus.  It’s a tailored look – contemporary, and clean.  The glazes lean toward a matte finish; that is, they aren’t really shiny.  Restful to the eye.  The pattern of holes is pretty too!

Use Verde Colander to strain fruits, greens, pastas, potatoes.  Makes a great fruit bowl as well.  Serve salad.  Display the bowl when it’s not in service.

Makes a great wedding, housewarming, birthday, holiday, or anytime gift.  Gift yourself and start your own collection.

Dishwasher safe.
