We call these uniquely shaped stoneware bowls Melon Bowls because they take their shape from a small melon we grew in our garden one summer. This unusual bowl is the perfect size for sharing snacks or individual cereal or soup bowls or a side dish. For example, try slicing a potato into circles, add butter and cheese and bake in the oven to make individual servings of scalloped potatoes.

And, of course, this bowl does not have to live only in the kitchen... use it for your sea glass collection, silver dollars or jewelry.
