These hand-built micaceous clay bowls are made to order. I offer small bowls for eating, and larger bowls for baking, serving or displaying food. Please specify red with fire clouds, horse hair markings or solid black. If you'd like a bowl with an incised mountain design, there will be an additional charge based on size. Most orders ship within six weeks.
Each micaceous vessel is a unique handmade piece that will only improve with time if you treat them well. This clay is slightly porous and has memory for what it has held. Over time it will develop a beautiful patina and seasoning that adds depth to food and drink.
Please hand-wash only, with mild soap or simply warm water and a scrub brush.
Do not soak overnight or use as a place to store cooked food.
Simmering a bit of water in your pot can help loosen any burnt bits, if you have a mishap.
Always dry your mica vessels thoroughly. If you live in a damp climate, you may wish to dry them periodically on your oven’s lowest setting.
Use wooden or non-metal utensils on micaceous clay to avoid scratches.
