Mushroom Soup Bowl
These soup bowls will hold a hearty amount of soup, and warm you on those chilly autumn and winter days.
The mushroom soup bowl is handmade on the potters' wheel. The handles are hand-pulled, and give something you can hold onto (using pot holders) as you take this out of the oven. Yes, you can put these in the oven, however I do suggest heating the bowl up with the oven rather than putting it right in a preheated oven. This will avoid shocking the stoneware.
The mushrooms are known as fly agaric and/or fly amanita mushrooms, and they're whimsical and reminiscent of the woods and fairy lore. They are hand painted. The bowl itself is glazed inside and out with opal lustre glaze, which has the loveliest, if unpredictable hues of caramel, yellow, and deep brown.
Bowl measures 5 inches diameter (6 inches at the handles) and 3 1/2 inches tall. Holds 20 ounces.
Microwave and dishwasher safe.
