This gorgeous bowl was hand made using stoneware clay which was thrown on a potter's wheel. The inside was then coated in green slip and I then carved butterflies, leaves and flowers through the slip into the clay. This technique is called sgraffito. On the outside I carved more leaves then glazed it with an earthy tan glaze. The bowl measures approx. 8 1/2" across x 2 3/4" deep. You could use it as a small fruit bowl or just for display. All of my hand made pottery pieces are food, oven and dishwasher safe. Do not put them on an open flame. Each of my pottery pieces is a one of a kind work of art unique in it's own way. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for looking!
