I had such a blast working on this bowl!! The concept came to me as I was babysitting my niece and she was having Alphabet Soup for lunch....I thought:
"How COOL! A bowl that would have tumbling letters falling all down it's sides piling up in a heap on the bottom!"
So that's what I did, and I've been staring at it, forming words here and there and everywhere....a spelling lesson with your lunch!!
♥ Handmade from the Earth with LOVE just for You!™ ♥
This piece would look incredible as a set with my "It's ALPHABETICAL", "ETCETERA" or "It's NUMERICAL" Mug or the Matching "ETCETERA" Bowl, go see here:

*´♥.•Do you REALLY like this Bowl but want it to say something more Personal to your being (or another someone's being as a Gift....?)......No Problem!! I ♥LOVE♥ Custom Orders, please contact me and I would be more than happy to create a Bowl/s with Your ideas and my Art!
The "A B Z's" bowl is about 6 3/4" in diameter and 2 1/2" deep and it has been Hand Built, so it's not perfectly round, but a wondrous Organic round-ness, full of Love from my hands to yours! The inside of the bowl is painted with 3 layers of an absolutely Awesome, Intense Deep Red, has my signature black swirly-cue, and it has been glazed, so it is food safe! On the outside of the bowl I used antique letterpress stamps, randomly grabbing Letters and pressing them into the clay, here and there, this way and that, creating a tumbling letter extravaganza! I have purposely left the clay unglazed on the outside, but it has been stained with a food safe black and then I painted each Letter individually with Black Glaze so they ***Pop** visually!! It is such an awesome textural sensation to hold the bowl and rub your fingers across the indented letters, plus it visually looks really cool with the glazed inside! The bottom of the bowl is signed and dated by yours truly.
*´♥.•NOTE~Please Remember: these dishes made Completely by Hand, start to finish, not a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on....that's what makes this Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!
This is a good sized bowl for a large serving of salad, soup or cereal..... or a big helping of dessert! And not only would it be a great conversation piece at your next dinner party, but is big enough to serve smaller side dishes as well!
What a unique and wondrous gift for any Teacher, Word Lover (Logophile), Crossword Fanatic....or just anyone that wants to have Fun while eating their Yummy Food!!
Thank you for stopping by and looking!
Peace and smiles....Kristin
