The shape and airy design of this bowl make it a perfect choice for ripening your vegetables and displaying your fruit. It works very well in extending the life of your produce. I use a clay coil and shape it in a random pattern to form this bowl.The dragonfly has cobalt,emerald, and turquoise crystal for its glaze. treat it like any dish, dishwasher/micro/ oven at any temperature. this oval shape is a really functional shape. Dimensions are approx:12'L X 8'W X 4'H.
