Item details

Keeps your ball yarn from rolling away as you knit or crochet. Makes a super gift for that hard to buy for knitter or crocheter in your life. Aren't you sick of just getting them JoAnn's gift cards?

Yarn bowl measures approximately 6 1/2" wide and 4" high.

All my yarn bowls are hand thrown by me on a potter's wheel. This bowl is glazed with a glossy, speckled aqua on top which runs down and interacts beautifully with an opaque dark blue. The leaf pattern is carved by hand, so no two are alike. Completely glazed so your yarn will pull smoothly. As each bowl is handmade, please allow for slight variations in size and pattern.

Please message me with any questions.

Thanks for looking at my pots!

I make my work using a potter's wheel. I use a white stoneware clay body, and throw different forms using the wheel. Some simple pieces, like small bowls only need to be partially dried and then trimmed to finish the foot. Other items, like coffee mugs, need to be trimmed and then have handles or other parts applied. Once all the parts are put together, I dry my work slowly to prevent cracking. Then they are fired without glaze up to 1826 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the bisque stage of firing. The wares are still porous enough to accept liquid glaze, but partially vitrified so they won't disintegrate in water. Then, I apply food safe glazes to the bisque ware, using wax resist to make most of my designs. The glazed pots are then fired a second time up to 2345 degrees. Once they are cool, they are ready to use.

All the work I make is food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe. I avoid using lead and barium in my glazes. I make my work to be used, enjoyed and given as gifts.

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

I use USPS Priority mail in most instances, but parcel post when costs become prohibitive. Everything I ship is double boxed for safety, and I always insure. I will ship within 1-3 days of receiving payment.

I use recycled or reused (but completely intact) materials for shipping. 1. To keep your cost down. 2. Because buying fresh boxes and packing is silly. So a package from me may look a little odd, or claim to contain coffee or computer parts(don't believe it for a second.)... but it's whats inside that counts!

The shipping fee includes the price of postage and packaging fees.


I accept direct checkout and paypal. In special circumstances I can also take personal checks.

Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

Additional policies

Coupons are good for new purchases and cannot be applied retroactively. Coupons cannot be applied after they have expired.

I do reuse images for some of my more popular items. This means that you may not be receiving the exact item shown in the picture. My work is quite consistent, so you should only expect minor, if any, differences in size and color. If you need to know the exact dimensions or volume of a piece, or for any reason would like a photo of an exact piece, please message me and I'll be happy to supply it.
