This is a wonderfully earthy looking little pit fired yarn bowl set with 4 coordinating maple leaf shaped buttons attached with twine. (make a bonnet from your favorite yarn, add 4 elastic loops to fit over the buttons and you have a cover for your bowl).

Finished colors are so befitting to autumn with orange rust, brown, black, a bit of ochre yellow, white and hints of blue and green. It's truly one of a kind pieces and there will never be another set like them. I have used the sepia picture to help define the cool visual texture that the colors created on the surface.

Created and born from my campfire's burning embers just this weekend, in a fun alternative method of firing.....pit firing - small scale. First, I bisque fire the pieces in my "normal" kiln, and then get them ready to hide amongst the logs in our back yard fire pit. The loss during firing is high, so when one turns out unscathed, it is something to celebrate. While certainly solid, pit fired pottery is "softer" than pottery fired to higher temperatures, and therefore more fragile. Unlike the durability you get from high fired stoneware, if you drop this on the floor, it's probably going to break.

No glaze, just coloring oxides in the fire created the irregular patches of color and tone ranging from gray black to rust, white, yellow gold, to hints of green, blue or plum, all in an almost matte sheen. Even the bottom is pretty on this one. The pieces have been treated with a little Future floor wax to bring out the colors and smooth the finish a bit.

This is a "midi" or mid sized bowl, not as little as my minis, but not as large as a regular one either. It features 3 holes for threading/feeding your yarn through and
It measures 4 3/4" wide and 3 3/8" tall, big enough to hold a decent sized ball of yarn. Perfect for traveling with!
