Two red rice bowls - Free Shipping

$ 85 USD


Regular price is $105 with shipping

What a beautiful way to serve rice or noodles! These two rice bowls in my valentine red glaze feature a clever way to keep your chopsticks neat and tidy. They have two holes and a resting divot to hold your chopsticks. I created them on my pottery wheel out of porcelain clay, cutting in the two chopstick holes and the semi-circular resting area across from the holes while the clay was soft.

I used a beautiful, glossy red glaze that is sure to complement most any food you want to serve in these bowls. Each will hold 3 cups of rice (or cereal, soup, ice cream, veggies, berries, etc.) and are 3" high x 6" across. The chopsticks are included with this bowl.

The listing is for both bowls shown in the photos with the chopsticks. It is signed on the bottom rim.

Microwave and dishwasher safe.

Artistic and functional, my handmade ceramic garlic keepers are the perfect way to keep garlic fresh without the mess of all the outside skin shedding in your cupboard. In fact, it's pretty enough to leave out on the countertop.

I make them on my pottery wheel out of durable, white stoneware clay, incising decorative holes in the sides and lid to allow air flow needed for the bulbs. I put a knob on the top that is whimsical and decorative, and complements the color and design of the rest of the pot.

I have these in a variety of colors and can make them in most any size you need. Most hold 2-3 garlic bulbs.
These lidded jars are available in my shop both online and physical shop in Steamboat Springs.

Rice bowls with chopsticks

What a perfect gift for anyone who loves rice or noodle dishes. These rice bowls in contemporary glaze colors feature a resting place for the chopsticks that come with them. I just got some handmade wooden chopsticks in from an artist in Thailand which complement these bowls beautifully.

They would make a wonderful graduation gift, wedding gift or something nice for yourself. At $45 each plus shipping, they are an affordable yet elegant addition to any dinner table.

I'm happy to include a card with a message from you in the package. Just let me know the wording.
