This lovely bowl with softly rippled edge provides ample room to hold yarn, keeping it safely away from cats and dust bunnies! Yarn feeds out through the curved notch smoothly and neatly. The pierced holes are functional as well as decorative. Use for a second color of yarn, or conveniently stow needles when not in use. The broad foot keeps the piece stable while you’re working.
I formed the pot on the potter's wheel using stoneware clay, altered the top rim, and then cut the notch and pierced graduated holes when it was leather hard. After the first firing, I used underglazes to add navy streaks, and then coated the piece with a medium blue glaze, before dipping the top rim into contrasting deep cobalt. The combination produces depth and frosty-looking particles in the melted glaze.
The piece is smooth to the touch, easy to clean, and very durable. All rims and edges are smoothed and rounded to keep yarn from fraying and to prevent chipping. The trimmed base shows off the speckled ivory clay.
The bowl is 7 ½ inches in diameter, 3 1/8 inches deep, and the foot is 4 ½ inches across. Volume: about 11/4 U.S. quarts (1.25 liters).
