Just in time for the holidays: CRUCIBLE BREAD BOWLS
STONEWARE BREAD BOWLS in Three Unique Glazes
In our latest kiln firing, we featured THREE glazes for the inside of our Crucibles: Butter Yellow, Serena Blue and Ruby Red--and ALL the colors fired up beautifully.
Each Crucible comes with a booklet -- Bread & Crucible -- which features our favorite French Bread recipe. Our crucibles are on sale (for the first time) because we are closing shop for a month to take a break and we want to give each a good home.
Just in time for the holidays: MAGIC BOWLS
MAGIC BOWL Collection: What's so magical about these bowls?
Perhaps it's the bowl's heart shape. Maybe it's the mesmerizing clarity and depth of the Serena Blue glaze when viewed outside in the sun.
In addition, the bowl's dark rim contrasts with the interior. Finally, the exterior is natural stoneware, sometimes with white porcelain inlay or marbled stoneware — definitely a showpiece and food safe.
We had a successful November firing so we have some beautiful Magic Bowls for you to select.
Always a customer favorite, here's our Fall 2021 FAVORITE BOWL Collection.
Inspired by the shapes of squash that we grew in our garden FAVORITE BOWLS are some of our most artistic and unique bowls. Some are tall; some are rounder than others, some are quiet, some are robust. They fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and sit firmly on a table. The design has tiny "seams" where the different clays have been inlaid and come together. (Don't worry; the bowl is 100% food safe.)
Stoneware CHARGERS or Small Platters
One-of-a-kind, handmade stoneware Chargers, available in several glaze colors, have a lovely presence at a meal.
