Handmade Scallop Lip Bowl from Boleslawiec, Poland

Handmade Scallop Lip Bowl now available from Boleslawiec, Poland

This scallop lip bowl is a fine piece of stoneware from Boleslawiec, where stoneware originated as folk art in the early 1800s. Measuring 9.5" x 4.5", this stoneware is completely functional. It is oven, dishwasher, freezer, microwave safe; lead and cadmium free, non-toxic, impervious to abrasives, fired at temperatures in excess of 1350 degrees centigrade; able to distribute heat evenly and retain foods moisture while baking.

The artists use natural sea sponge to hand apply lead-free paint to their creations. No two pieces are exactly alike.
