I purchased more of these for when we have friends over for sushi night! These are great for sauce too.

About

Story Bowls

I've been a painter for years, creating artwork exploring mythology, fairytales and fables. When I rediscovered my love of clay, I found I could combine my years of experience with image-making, illustration and pattern work with the practice of pottery.
I build my bowls and mugs by hand using a pinch or slab method. Then I incise designs on the surface using Sgraffito - before the clay dries, I cover the surface with underglaze, then carve designs into the clay. I bisque fire the clay, then touch up the design and apply glaze and fire again.
I bring my love of story to my ceramics work in my Story Bowls - Illustrated pottery inspired by mythology, fairy tales, and folk tales.

    I'm an artist and a mom and a substitute teacher. I build my pottery in my home studio. When I'm not making art I'm reading or hiking or playing with my boys. I attended Carnegie Mellon University and have a BFA in Fine Art.
