Artist: Tim Curtin I've been working in clay for twenty years now, and what originally started as a lark has become a definite obsession. I love the ability to sit down with a lump of mud and turn it into something beautiful and long-lasting with nothing more than my hands and fire. These are *not* your run-of-the-mill corner store bottle toppers -- they are a labor of love, each truly one-of-a-kind, take hours to make, and are built to last! The business end is machined from the highest quality stainless available anywhere, which is then carefully attached to my creations using industrial-strength epoxy. Unlike most stoppers that are plated and can flake or pit, these are medical-grade and can be kept in a bottle for as long as you like. Perfect for anything from wine to perfume to vinegar.

You want this absolutely beautiful handthrown bowl! Deep royal blue inside and rim, matte brown bottom. Holds 3 cups of soup, cereal, or snacks, is 5.5" wide, 3.75" high, and weighs 18oz. Fits your hands and spoons just right, and has excellent weight and balance!

Food-safe, lead-free, dishwasher and microwave safe (although treasured hand-made ceramic would probably appreciate hand-washing more.)

The matte surface of the bottom is from foam-brushing on red oxide, and feels great against your skin, while food and your spoons will slide right along the beautiful blue glaze inside.

Signed, dated 2013, and stamped on the base - the stamp has a tiny bit of blue glaze that doesn't show well in the pictures, but definitely adds to the appeal.

You want this bowl. Your friends will want it too, but they're going to have to get their own, aren't they?
