Early this spring I was inspired by another potter's bowl, a lovely urn shape with handles that was just begging for a wide frog to rest at the rim and hold a profusion of flowers. I ordered a glass frog to test the idea and immediately threw several footed bowls with frog-lids for my own bowls. I've kept a blue bowl filled with zinnias and roses on my kitchen shelves all summer and am please to be able to offer them to you!
These smooth white stoneware bowls are thrown and trimmed on the wheel. They measure 4.5-6.5" in daimeter and 3.5-4" tall. Most bowls have handles. Each bowl comes with a gently rounded frog "lid" that rests inside the bowl. The frogs are pierced with a minimum of 10 almost 1/2" holes to hold your flower and foliage stems.
Although each bowl is fully glazed on the inside and has a trimmed foot, over time moisture may begin to seep through even vitrified clay. If using your flower bowls on fine wood surfaces, please use a coaster or small saucer to protect your wood. Painted and stone surfaces seem to be fine, at least at my house.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for custom orders.
