This hand-thrown mixing bowl holds a generous six cups. It's just waiting to mix up a batch of cookies or muffins from scratch. Perfect if you are making pancakes for a crowd. It has a comfortable handle attached to the back for pouring. Thrown on my potter's wheel and finished in my favorite pearl green glaze.

A little bit about the process:

For some people, throwing clay on the potter's wheel can be addictive. It certainly was for me. Once I tried it, I could not stop and that was over 30 years ago. Basically, you put a lump of clay in the middle of a wheel head, start the wheel spinning and, once you get that clay “centered”, you turn it into something beautiful. “Centering” the clay is one of the most important steps in throwing pottery.  If your clay is not centered when you begin to pull up the piece, it will be off balance, and you will fight the clay the whole time. If I am centered, then the clay centers and all goes smoothly. If I am not centered, it's a different story. It is a great metaphor for life...

Stoneware is clay that can be fired to a high enough temperature to vitrify it. This means it is not porous and will not absorb moisture or leak when liquid is left in it, which makes it well-suited to its use in creating kitchenware and tableware. It is fired in a pottery kiln to at least 2200° F. In my studio, I work primarily with a white stoneware clay because I love the way the glazes look over the white clay.

Glaze is a coating of glass which is fused to the surface of a clay piece during the kiln firing. It adds color, texture and strength to the piece. The glaze serves to prevent the penetration of liquids, and to create an easily cleaned surface, as well as providing color and decoration.
