Ceramic berry bowl, pottery kitchen colander fruit berry strainer
This ceramic berry bowl colander is wheel thrown stoneware clay. Thrown with a narrow base and flared rim, a well defined foot ring completes the bottom. After the bowl was stiff, I used a star punch for the holes. Some of the cut out stars are attached to the inside. The saucer was thrown at the same time. Glazed in a shiny black. About 7" diam. and 4" tall. The saucer is 5.75" diam.
Non toxic glaze is food safe and dishwasher safe. Use this pretty strainer for washing off berries and take it straight to the table. The saucer will catch the drips. I make my berry bowls with fewer holes as I like the water to partially fill the bowl before draining out. I like to have washed fruit out on the counter. Makes a pretty display piece, too!
