Agateware Trinket Bowl

£10.00

These bowls are made using a unique process of mixing coloured stains with stoneware clay. This style of ceramics is called agateware, derived from the agate stone, which when sliced shows multicoloured layers. The process of mixing colourants into clay is very difficult and requires a lot of time and experience.

These bowls are made up of two different colours of stoneware clay and white clay. The clay is thrown on the potter’s wheel to produce unique pieces with unrepeatable patterns.

The bowls are glazed with a transparent glaze and fired to 1220°C to produce a glossy surface that is waterproof and food-safe.

Care Instructions

  • Dishwasher friendly but hand washing is advised. There is a greater risk of ceramics being chipped or cracked in dishwashers due to items clanking together during the cycle. Chemicals in dishwashers can also be very harsh and may scratch the glazes over time. Handwashing is always kinder to hand made ceramics.
