These exquisite handmade porcelain serving + mixing bowls, with their ingeniously elegant functional pouring lips, are the finest version of the form we've ever encountered. If you're the kind of person whose heart beats faster at the sight of beautiful nesting bowls then allow us to bring you a chair so you can calm down a little. And while you're sitting there, why don't we bring you a shaved fennel salad in the 10" bowl and your favorite chips in the 6"-er?
Seriously durable and designed for everyday use, these pieces are half glazed-the interior is finished with an extremely hard, high gloss, clear glaze and the outside is left raw-fired to show off the clay's unique texture. That almost luminous soft white color? That's the all-natural hue of the porcelain itself. It woke up like this. And then it made you pancakes from scratch. Pour spouts are ideal for transferring batters or sauces or, when used for serving, as a handy spot for corralling that big spoon. We particularly love them as impromptu punch bowls.
About John Julian: Hand thrown, fettled (a word we love-it's when a piece of porcelain is smooth finished by hand using a knife and a sponge before going into the kiln), glazed, and fired at exceptionally high temperatures, John Julian's simple, beautiful porcelain is lovingly made to last in a small workshop in Wiltshire, England. Designed by artist + sculptor Julian Sainsbury, these silhouettes recall the classic elegant-workmanlike shapes that have been gracing English kitchens and tables for hundreds of years. Contrary to popular belief, porcelain is not fussy. Go ahead and put it in the dishwasher or pop it in the microwave. Rejoice!
