Hand-Made Red & Black Stoneware Serving Bowl -NEW!
This product is currently sold out
This one-of-a-kind red & black stoneware serving bowl is by artist Ginny Marsh. Inspired by the artistic aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, finding beauty in imperfection, Ginny's inspiration for this bowl is two different types of lava: jet-black obsidian for the highly polished interior, while volcanic, spongy, and iron-enriched pumice lava provides dramatic contrast for the serving bowl's exterior. An art-piece for display, or use it to serve a colorful salad!
