two coffee bowls - roman bird with olive branch

44.00

A bird flies around the outside of this coffee bowl, a bit of olive branch in its beak.  The bird pictured was inspired by an ancient roman pot I saw at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

The interior of one is bright light green, the other is a soft grey.

The exterior is unglazed, polished porcelain. It feels a bit like a weathered stone--the porcelain is vitrified (sealed)  and it will not stain.

I call it a coffee bowl and it holds a latte made with a double pot of espresso and a generous amount of milk, or can fill it with tea, or maybe even granola, or a generous serving of ice cream. 

Approximately four inches tall, and 4.75 inches wide, it holds just about 16 ounces.

Each piece is thrown on the potters wheel and will vary slightly.

You may wash them by hand or in the dishwasher.  If you drink a lot of tea, like I do, the inside will stain over time--but this is easily removed with an abrasive scrubbing (I use those dark green scouring pads commonly found in the grocery store--we call them "green scrubbies").
