This bowl is woven with clay strips that are cut off at the top on a diagonal for a unique contemporary design. It is 12" in length and 5" tall. It is a perfect aerated fruit bowl,large enough for bananas. Its also a good size if you want to actually bake your bread in it. It makes a neat checker board pattern. It will retain whatever temperature you set it at. It is a pretty centerpiece as well. It is available in all my glaze colors: taffy, black , white, cobalt, and handbrushed glaze combinations of ocean,sunset and blue/white.
