Metallic black Soup/ Salad Bowls
A deep soup or salad bowl to add to your collection. These bowls are glazed with a locally created glaze. They have turned out more textured and silver than previous glazed items with the same glaze! The joy of pottery ... sometimes things turn out differently than expected.
Dimensions Diameter: 16 cm (6.5") Height: 8 cm (3")
Description: Ceramic wheel thrown bowl made with white stoneware clay and glazed with our SJD metallic black glaze.
*Important: this is a handmade item. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique.
It is made with lead-free, food safe glaze and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each bowl is carefully created on the wheel. I trim the bowl to give it a better finish and create a bottom rim before it is hand carved. Every bowl goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the bowl is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the bowl and load the kiln for the next fire. For this fire the temperature is higher, 2232° F. It brings resistance and turns it into a non-absorbent item. Once cooled, the bottom is sanded for a smooth finish.
