From Captain's Choice:
We are pleased to offer you a variety of two distinct lather bowl designs, this one from our Seaworthy Collection.
SAPPHIRE - feast your eyes upon the complexity of an exquisite green glaze with navy flecks and undertones, as well as a prominent rust-red accent along the ridges. A glorious combination!
Our Seaworthy Lather Bowls are a wonderful departure into the creative. Utilizing an exclusive blend of glazes, these lather bowls emerge from the kiln with a visual “break” on any prominent ridge. This deep russet color is seen on the lower prominent edge, along the top rim, and on the interior grooves. The exterior ridge serves an important functional role as well. With the lather bowl held in the palm and thumb on the button, the fingertips will naturally come to rest either under the prominent ridge or over it. Both ways ensure a very secure grip no matter the size of the hand.
Handcrafted by a local potter to our specifications, each lather bowl begins as a lump of clay on a potter's wheel as seen in the pictures. The beauty of this handmade item is that each one will differ slightly. Natural differences in the glaze along with the individual craftsmanship of each bowl ensure that no two will be exactly the same.* They measure approximately 4 1/2" wide and 1 1/2" deep and will appear similar to the one that is pictured.
Ridges on the interior expedite the lathering process, and the low profile ensures the brush handle will not strike against the side. The convenient "button" with our signature compass rose adds a touch of class while serving as a thumb rest to provide a secure grip as you lather—perfecto!
*As with any handmade item, each piece will vary slightly in size and finish.
