This lovely stoneware pottery yarn bowl was hand thrown on a wheel. The slot and holes were carved before it was bisque fired, glazed and fired again. I make bottoms of my yarn bowls a little weighty so they will be more stable while using them. The bowl measures approx. 6 1/2" across x 3 3/4" deep. It is glazed with hand painted white flowers with red centers, cobalt blue with a hint of green. The inside is oatmeal. This is a one of a kind piece. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for looking!!
