This bowl was created on the pottery wheel with marbled and colored stoneware clay. 

Add to that the fact that it broke clean in half inside the kiln and then was fixed with Kintsugi, a Japanese method of mending pottery to show that just because something was once broken, doesn't mean it can't be worth even more and be all the more beautiful when it is put back together. It's a message we like around these parts.

There was a slight mishap while applying the Kintsugi on the bottom of the bowl, so it is a little messy on the bottom side, thus the reduced price for the bowl (for a Kintsugi bowl like this, I would usually charge $600+), but nothing that can be seen when looking at it from the top or sides.

Always cloth-clean Kintsugi pottery with warm water and no soaps or chemicals. The epoxy used with Kintsugi is stronger than the clay itself, but you'll wanna keep the metallic shine strong on the Kintsugi lines!

Notes about purchasing items in this collection:

  1. TYPES OF CLAY:
    - Stoneware (one of the strongest forms of pottery, literally becomes stone in the process)
    - Porcelain (even stronger than stoneware, and costs more due to complexity of and cost of materials)
  2. Size has much less to do with pricing in this collection than difficulty and complexity of creating the piece. I use different firing methods, glaze techniques, raw materials, clay type, stains, etc to get every finished pot, and all factors are applied when figuring out the final price.
  3. I do my best to accurately measure each bowl, but it can be difficult to be exact with rounded objects so the measurements may vary slightly.
  4. Any pot labeled as a "seconds" in the product title means that it has one or more small cosmetic shortcomings. This could include "s-cracks" on the bottom (where you won't see it), non-standard scuffs near the base, tiny chips, micro-surface cracks, etc. Every seconds pot is marked down 10-30% from what it normally would sell for.
  5. Any accessories/props, or other bowls from the collection shown in the photos, are not included. 
  6. Always hand-wash handmade ceramics. Dishwashers are not your friend. This bowl, if taken care of, should outlive us both. Always give it TLC.

SHIPPING: 

I live/work in the USA, but you can order this pottery to be delivered just about anywhere in the world. Insurance is included on every order.

Please note that it may take me 7-10 days to get your order ready to ship. This is a very big collection and it's going to take me some time to organize it all and make sure everyone's orders are packaged securely and perfectly. Thanks for understanding!

Please also note that shipping and handling is extra. This is pottery and therefore is fragile. It takes some work, high quality materials, and time to properly package your pottery. All rates are factored in with real time pricing plus a materials/handling fee and will vary depending on where you live.

NOTE: I do my best to capture the true essence of all my pottery. Please note that every piece will look different depending on its surroundings and lighting, or on different screens.

All purchases are non-refundable. All my pottery is stoneware or porcealin, meaning it was fired at higher temperatures with more premium clay and glazes to make it truly durable. The only exception to this is Raku pottery which is fired at a lower temperature but still very strong. If you are buying any of my pottery as part of a drop, please note that it may take me 1-2 weeks to prepare the entire drop for shipment. Thank you for your patience.
