Low-slung and effortlessly elegant, this graceful porcelain bowl is endlessly versatile. Savory sides or small salads, a display of CSA bounty or a place to keep your collection of seaglass, this stunning hand-thrown bowl is where it's at.
Seriously durable and designed for everyday use. Fully 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 offered you a selection of perfectly ripe fruits from its perch on the kitchen counter.
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!
