Numbers Pottery Bowl

Numbers Pottery Bowl - HandMade Letterpress Stamped Serving Dish - Math Teacher, Statician, Accountant Present - Soup, Cereal, Salad size
teeee heeeee....
I had such a blast working on this bowl and the concept came to me as I was doing my TAXES!! Because after awhile all I could see was this jumbling heap of numbers and I needed a big bowl of ice cream to calm my jangled nerves....!
So basically I took my Taxing Experience and created a fun and crazy tumbling numbers bowl.....a Math Lesson with your lunch!!

The "DOLLARS and SENSE" bowl is 6 1/2" in diameter and 2 1/2" deep. The inside of the bowl is painted with 3 layers of an intense and glorious Rusty Burnt Orange, has my signature black swirly-cue, and it has been glazed, so it is food safe! On the outside of the bowl I used antique letterpress stamps, randomly grabbing numbers and pressing them into the clay, here and there, this way and that, creating a tumbling number extravaganza! I have purposely left the clay unglazed on the outside, but it has been stained with a food safe Rust Color, the Numbers have been "highlighted" with Black Glaze and it is such an Awesome textural sensation to hold the bowl and rub your fingers across the indented letters, plus it visually looks really cool with the glazed inside! On the bottom of the bowl I pressed in the numbers "1 2 3" and signed and dated it with black glaze.....YAY!!

*´♥.•NOTE ~ Please Remember: these dishes are made Completely by Hand, start to finish,and Kiln Fired 2 times. They are NOT a store bought dish that I am writing and painting on and baking in an oven {where the Design will eventually fail}....that's what makes them Super Extra Special!!
All of my handmade pottery is painted with lead free/food safe glazes. It is microwave and dishwasher safe, although I do recommend hand washing because my carefully made clay pieces, although very durable, happily deserve a little more love than commercially manufactured ware. Please do not put this in the oven!

This is a good sized bowl for a large serving of salad, soup or cereal..... or a big helping of dessert! And not only would it be a great conversation piece at your next dinner party, but is big enough to serve smaller side dishes as well!

What a unique and wondrous gift for any Teacher, Mathematician, Numerologist, or how about your Accountant or the Person preparing Your Taxes!?! Or....Yourself, because having FUN while you're eating is what it's all about!
