POTTERY WEST Enclosed Bowl in Pale Stoneware - Nori glaze


A refined yet functional bowl with an upper rim that gently tilts inward to protect its contents.

Beautiful on a table and also very pleasurable to hold in two hands. 

Catherine and Matt West developed the enclosed form of this bowl for ramen, but have since discovered that it also works very well for porridge, soup or stew. 

Crafted from a pale Cornish stoneware, each bowl is hand thrown on the potter’s wheel in Pottery West's Sheffield studio, and stamped with their maker's mark on the base. 

Finished in Pottery West's Nori glaze. Like its namesake, ‘nori’ is a spectacular tapestry of blues, greens, occasionally browns. It’s one of the earliest glazes Pottery West developed and also one of their most popular. On the pale stoneware of these ramen bowls, Nori is rich and crystalline, with vivid blue tones and a lovely glossy finish.

Pottery West make each piece by hand. Because of the handmade nature of these bowls, there may be slight variation in the dimensions specified in this listing and also variation in the glaze between each piece. 

How to care for your bowl
Wash your ceramics by hand when you can as regular dishwasher use may shorten their lifespan. Avoid placing in extreme hot or cold environments such as an oven or a freezer, as this could cause thermal shock and result in fragility and cracking and/or breakage.
