This is a beautiful piece. It's a mid-sized, wheel-thrown stoneware bowl in our Prairie Fire Night color combination. At the center is a dramatic swath of red. It's impressive both for the vividness of its colors and the complexity of its glaze patterns. It will no doubt be a striking addition to your room decor. But remember, it's also a totally functional serving piece that you can bring out at your next dinner party. Like everything at Prairie Fire Pottery it is handmade, lead-free, microwavable, and food and dishwasher-safe. This comes highly recommended.
