A beautiful way to display seasonal fruit, decorative items, as well as simply as a stand alone piece, our custom pedestal bowl is made to our specifications by master artisan hands, exclusively for our collection. The lovely sheen on our custom pieces is the result of an intense burnishing process with quartz stones that’s done before the traditional pit fire process – they’re not glazed. These elegant works are both lead-free and food safe. As they’re the result of a handmade process, certain elements should be considered. Please read our notes below.

Artisan
This collective of six master artisan women has been collaborating on custom orders for over a decade. They create handmade works from local clay in a small range of tones that are formed and burnished by hand, and pit fired in brick pit fire kiln that helps to keep the smoke out of their lungs. Along with the natural pottery that we carry, they can also make custom orders of pottery that’s coated and polished with beeswax. As their pueblo is located in a nature reserve, this designs are reflective of the landscape in their region, which supports and abundance of cacti and agave.

Dimensions
Approximately 28cm wide x 14cm

Care
For best care results, they should be washed and dried by hand – no dishwasher. We’d also recommend not to use them in the microwave or the oven.

Note
The noted price is for a single burnished pedestal bowl. Given the nature of handmade, the sizes, designs, finishes and hues will vary from the featured product image. As this piece is made from unglazed clay, it will naturally filter water, stain if greasy items are placed on the surface, scratch with the use of forks and knives, plus the pottery will gradually darken and dull over time with use. Also, given the process, these pieces may feature spots, cracks, scratches and darker areas. These are normal elements for this type of pottery – they’re not flaws.
