A large rustic ceramic serving bowl from my Fossil Maple Leaves series. A wonderful bowl to leave out throughout the year. Looks great as a fruit bowl or with candles or pine cones as the centerpiece of a bountiful family gathering.
It’s made with a slab of stoneware clay, slip, real maple leaves and a coiled rim. It was fired, glazed, then fired again in the gas kiln to over 2350 degrees F. Just because I like the bottom to be nice too, it’s done in my Grandmother’s lace pattern.

Food Safe/Hand Washing is Recommended
White stoneware is a type of clay that fires at a very high temperature and will remain lighter than regular stoneware. My glazes are hand mixed to complement each other and many pieces have over 6 glazes working together. I fire to Cone (^) 9 in a large gas reduction kiln, which gets to 2350 degrees F. This type of firing is not computerized and I use my eyes, ears and nose to adjust temperature. I watch the flame to make sure it’s the right color and listen to the roar it makes. There should always be a slight odor of gas. It takes about 40 hours firing from start to finish.
This type of high firing makes the perfect piece for everyday usage in the kitchen or as tableware.
