Small clay bowl handcrafted in Puebla, México. Sized for serving side dishes or individual servings. It can also be used for storing fruit and is beautiful as a decorative piece. Each clay bowl is thrown on a potters wheel, and finished with small handles shaped by hand. The bowls are burnished but not glazed, resulting in a smooth, almost waxy feel and hefty weight. The color is a natural, sandy beige.
Purchase individually or as a set with the Large Clay Bowl and Deep Clay Bowl.
These special pieces are made by a group of artisans in a remote town in the state of Puebla, located in central México. Once a seabed, the soil in this region is now rich with clay which spawned a culture of pottery production that has been honed over decades. The clay is sourced locally and worked until it is ready to be shaped into objects such as bowls, vases, plates and more. Each piece is finished with a clay slip and burnished prior to being fired.
Expect slight variations in size, shape, texture and color. Each piece is made by hand, and will feature the unique attributes to be expected from individually handcrafted items.
