Use the center bottom of this little dish to grate your garlic, then add olive oil and dip your Italian bread. Yummy! Or grate garlic or ginger to add to your favorite recipe. This bowl is wheel thrown stoneware. It is coral and yellow with a carved botanical design on the inside. The bowl measures approx. 5 1/4" across x 1 3/4" deep. Food and dishwasher safe. Each bowl I make is a little different in size and shape. No two are alike. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for looking!! All Annie's Earth Pottery is hand made by me in the USA.
