Impressed Bowls – Handmade Bowls

Handmade bowl inscribed with a Shakespeare Quote. A beautiful wedding or housewarming gift!

The bowls are textured with wallpaper patterns are formed from flat pieces of clay which are wrapped and overlapped to create simple pieces with function and beauty. It comes in green, ruby and cobalt blue with complementary surface patterns.  The designs are contemporary and the nostalgic quality of the wallpapers nod to traditional textiles. I have used this generous bowl as a serving salad, as a fruit bowl or even for a summer punch!

Choose between two surfaces: Blue Deco and Green Seeds and five sizes.
