Description

This yarn bowl was hand thrown on my potters wheel using strong white stoneware clay. The slit to thread your yarn through was carved out of the bowl whilst still damp. After being fired in my kiln the bowl was glazed in combination of glossy black with a reactive blue glaze on the rim which flows down the sides and inside to give this gorgeous effect, after glazing the bowl is fired once more in my kiln to 1220ºc.

A yarn bowl stops your wool from rolling over the floor as you knit. A must have for any knitter.

No two bowls will ever be exactly the same. The pictured item is the one you will receive.

Height: 84mm
Diameter at rim: 133mm

The ball of wool pictured is a 50g ball (not included), there is ample extra room for larger balls of wool.

All of my handmade ceramics will be well packaged prior to shipping, I’d hate for anything to get damaged in the mail. Happy to combine shipping, post worldwide and all of my items are made and ready for immediate dispatch.

How It’s Made

By Hand.

All of my work is handmade, predominetly on a potter’s wheel. Once the clay has been prapared the ball is transfered onto the wheel where the form is pulled. Once made, the peice is left to dry slightly overnight to a leather hard consistency before hopping right back onto the wheel to be trimmed with turning tools to remove any excess clay and refine the shape.

Once the clay has fully dried out after a week or two it goes into the kiln for the first firing – the bisque – where it will be slowly heated to 1030°c. The piece is then ready to glaze. Glaze is a slurry of different clays, chemicals and metal oxides which melt in the second kiln firing to create a glass-like surface, the metal oxides creating the colours. During this final firing the kiln will reach 1220°c.
