This pretty bowl was hand made using stoneware clay which was thrown on a potter's wheel. It has a hand carved botanical design on the outside of the bowl with gray/blue glaze on the outside and blue glaze on the inside. The bowl measures approx. 5 5/8" across x 3" deep. It's a great size for cereal, soup or ice cream. All of my hand made pottery pieces are food 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!
