The design for my Gathering Bowls collection came about during the COVID Lockdown period in 2020. The bowls represented the desire to be sharing food, coming together with family and friends when we were isolating.
In May 2021 I had the honour of having two of my large Gathering Bowls on show at the Green Man Gallery’s exhibition coincidentally titled “May Gathering”. The time felt right to make a new batch of Gathering bowls, of which this is one of the new collection.
These bowls look delightful filled with delicious food, snacks and nibbles, they are a joy to hold and be passed around the table as you catch up on life with your loved ones.
Handmade from stoneware paperclay which gives the piece a delicately thin finish. This product has been fired in an electric kiln to 1250 degrees centigrade. All dimensions and weights are approximate. This piece is glazed inside and out with a raw clay base (stoneware is never glazed on the base – it would stick to the kiln shelves if it were!).
Please note that all of my pieces are handmade and one of a kind, therefore minor imperfections may be present in the form, texture, colour, glaze and markings created during the making process – these add to the character of each piece, and makes each piece unique.
To preserve the beautiful glaze we advise handwashing items only. Glaze is food safe. We recommend protecting delicate surfaces this item is placed on.
