I made this bowl from stoneware on the wheel. When it is leather hard I trim the foot ring. Glazed in a satin matte black and fired to 2340º F in my gas fired kiln for a durable vitrified finish. I then add the 22K gold splash and fire a second time to a lower temperature. Measures 5 1/2" wide and 2 1/4" high. Made from all non toxic materials this functional bowl is completely food safe. Because of the 22K gold it can not be used in the microwave.
