A delightful set of three nesting bowls, each perfectly sized for their own purpose with a useful lip for pouring.
Use the smallest for making dressings, the middle for salsas and dips and the large for salads, baking cakes or pancake batter.
A perfect design which is both useful for prepping meals as well as being more than beautiful enough to bring to the table as serving ware.
Thrown by hand on a potters wheel in Cornwall using local clay, the partial dolomite glaze brings out the iron in the clay body lending a slight hint of blue. The bottom of the bowls is left unglazed, which gives a wonderful earthy feel as well as a sturdy base which won't slip and slide.
