This GORGEOUS bowl is hand crafted out of red clay. The assembly portion of this piece alone takes 2-3 hours. Once out of the bisque kiln, I glazed it with "jewelry" which breaks at ridges and uneven surfaces. This is what gives this bowl the unique "mottled" appearance. Each piece is truly one of a kind and unique! Looking for a special gift for Christmas? Anniversary? Birthday? Don't wait too long!! There is a MINIMUM lag time of 1 week for this piece, even if on a rush order. They are flying off my shelves as soon as I make them, and sometimes, as soon as I remove them from the kiln!!
