You know that a yarn bowl, that sits by your side in your living room, is not just a functional piece, but a work of art. It holds your yarn by running the yarn through the guide or through one of the holes, and it has a place of honor in your house. Being that you are a creative person drawn to artistic things, you want more than just your average yarn bowl. Each one of these bowls is made by hand, impressed with a hand-crocheted doily, so even the same color bowl will be slightly different every time it is made. Inspired by a love of clay and a love of yarn, this hand-built one-of-a-kind yarn bowl is something to treasure. This is the kind of piece you can show off, be proud of, and even pass down through the generations.
The hand-crocheted doily shown in the individual bowl photos is the doily used as an impression on the clay, in the bowl-making process.
These bowls were glazed with non-toxic glazes and can be cleaned with hot soapy water or run through the dishwasher. They are shaped to be a little wider on the bottom than at the top, helping to make your piece more sturdy and give it less chance of being tipped over if rambunctious pets or children are in the house.
HaldeCraft ceramics begin life as slip-cast, hand-built, or wheel-thrown pieces and then are painted and glazed and put out into the world, all by the hands of one person. I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make incorporate now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio with confidence, mindfulness, and joy.
