It won't matter if you're sitting at the table, counter or snuggled on the sofa with a bowl of pasta goodness using your new handmade pasta bowl is going to make dinner extra special. Everything looks gourmet in these bowls, even if your pasta is as simple as buttered noodles with a smattering of parmesan and dried parsley. We're not going to judge you for what you eat in them as long as you're using them.

When my friends Bob and Katie messaged me asking if I would make them a set of pasta bowls I was all over it. I'd been looking for a reason to add these to the assortment and having an order for them was the perfect impetus. We have Bob & Katie to thank for inspiring these new bowls!

These pottery bowls are not limited to pasta. The shape is a favorite of chefs for all sorts of dishes because of the way that the bowl envelopes the food, framing it and making it look extra special. We love to use these bowls for thick stews, pasta, cereal, a rustic roast with root vegetables, salads, fruit, or as a serving bowl for a side dish at a family style dinner.

Just in case you're REALLY into plants, these bowls also make a gorgeous succulent planter centerpiece with a landscape of different succulents.

Measures approximately 8" diameter and 2.25" high. 

Interior is glazed. Exterior is unglazed.

Microwave & dishwasher safe.

Oven safe if you put the bowls into a cool oven and slowly bring it up to temperature.

 

Bowls will be glazed to order. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.

Each bowl is handmade and completely unique. We make families of bowls, not exact clones which means you can expect lovely subtle differences in each piece. That's what we love so much about handmade pottery!

Serving a large salad or pasta requires a special bowl. Our handmade ceramic Harvest Bowl is equally at home loaded with your favorite family recipe and ready to serve as it is on the table or counter holding five pounds of apples, your latest garden harvest or with a loaf of bread rising before it goes in the oven.

A kitchen lover's dream bowl also happens to be an interior designer's favorite. The classic white glaze on natural tan clay looks beautiful on the dinner table or the coffee table.

Each bowl is handmade on the pottery wheel by Dusty, one of our resident potters. The clay is intentionally sourced nearby from our favorite female-owned clay maker and the glaze is mixed in our studio. Every step of the process is done by hand. From the time a bowl is just a simple lump of clay to its completion, it will go through the hands of eight artisans. You know that every time you purchase pottery from Gravesco Pottery that you're supporting artisans right here in Indianapolis and suppliers in the Midwest.

Measures approximately 11" diameter and 4" high.

Microwave and dishwasher safe.

Grilled cheese and a handful of chips, a giant slice of chocolate cake, a small healthy salad, a crusty piece of bread to go along with dinner or a few appetizers at your next party.

The Gavrinis inspired hand carved ritual bowl is going to add a special meaning to your personal rituals. The bowl measures approximately 4” diameter and is handmade using a dark stoneware clay from Kentucky Mudworks, a woman owned and operated clay manufaturer that we just happen to love.

Use your new ritual bowl with palo santo, sage, sweetgrass, resin, incense or any of your favorite clearing ingredients. Each bowl comes with a small amount of pure silica sand for the bottom so the bowl does not get too hot to hold and to extinguish your burning whatever. 

Every bowl is unique. While you may not receive the exact bowl in the photo, you will receive one from this series. We will intuitively choose the bowl for you. 

One of my favorite sage bundles is from Flowering Moon. If you purchase the set of 3 sage bundles from her she will include the directions for her smudging ritual which is my absolute favorite. It is simple to follow and deeply powerful when performed correctly. It’s more than just burning sage and waving it about. She’ll walk you through every step of the process and you will be able to claim your space while clearing the energy with success every time. Click here to purchase sage bundles from Flowering Moon. If you prefer white sage, you can purchase our ethically sourced White Sage from Juniper Ridge here.

Now for the exciting stuff! This is how the bowl came into being...

When my good friend, Deb Swingholm of Flowering Moon came home from her last trip to France she was alight with stories about visiting Gavrinis.

If you google Gavrinis you’ll find a load of misinformation about it being a tomb with “abstract carvings” dating back to approximately 3500 bc. It turns out, it isn’t a tomb at all but a ritual space and those abstract carvings are actually murals of waves, suns, chevrons, trees, lozenges, coils, spirals and concentric arcs. Those arcs, not abstract at all, are described as “vulvas” and combined with the waves, the carvings “seem to say that the generative force of the Goddess is inexhaustible, rising and flowing like waves,” according to UCLA archaeology professor Marija Gimbutas. Googling “Gavrinis goddess” will get you much more interesting and accurate information.

Reclaiming power as women, the permission to set our own physical boundaries and appreciating the amazing things women do within our civilization has been a motivating force for me this past decade. Not to say I’ve ever been much of a shrinking flower, but knowing that women were once revered as the leaders of their culture and they kept the spiritual wellbeing of their tribes as sacred is heartening. Being surrounded by strong, intelligent women who bring change to their lives and the lives of those around them is inspiring. Finding male friends who support the strengths and power of the women in their lives has given me hope for a future where women do not have to struggle to be valid.

In developing new designs for pottery I have always worked to design objects that function well as intended and to decorate them in a way that means something to me.

Sometimes those carvings say, “f%#* salad, I want cake,” because...hello...cake! Sometimes they are deeply personal carvings inspired by the travels of the women in my circle, meant to empower more women to embrace their inner strength and become the badass they were always meant to be.

When a raindrop hits the surface of still water, the impact ripples out in concentric circles. It's a wonderful metaphor for how our actions cause ripples that impact our environment, relationships and future actions. Concentric circles are a lovely tribute or reminder to our impact on the world around us.

Our little hand carved concentric circles dish is just the right size for your rings by the sink, a crystal on your altar, a tea bag, or my favorite is to use it for an air plant. There's something about combining those concentric circles with a living, breathing plant that just makes me happy.

Like everything at Gravesco, we sought an air plant supplier that is ethical. All our air plants are grown in CITES-certified nurseries and never taken from the wild. 

AIR PLANT CARE from our supplier:

CARING FOR YOUR BRAND NEW AIR PLANTS

Yay, they've arrived! After you've unpacked your plants and spent sufficient time marveling at their unique beauty (and possibly giving them names), give them a good soak in a water bath (submerged in the water) for about 20-30 minutes. Shake gently to remove any excess water, and set in a spot with bright light and good air circulation to dry off. Follow the directions below for ongoing care of your plants.

LIGHT

Air plants should be kept where they'll receive bright, indirect sunlight or under fluorescent home/office lighting. Periods of direct sunlight are just fine, but more than a few hours of hot sun will deplete the plants of their moisture. If your plant will be in a spot with some pretty direct light, try misting them every couple of days to keep them hydrated.

WATER

Air plants live on air, right? Uh, not right! While air plants don't grow in soil, they definitely NEED to be watered. While the plants can survive for long periods of drought, they will not grow or thrive and will eventually die off if water is too scarce. Follow the directions below for watering your plants on a regular basis and they will stay alive and well for quite some time. The good news is that since these plants are very forgiving, you shouldn't stress over their care schedule. There's certainly no need to get a babysitter when you go on vacation.

As a main method of watering your plants, we recommend giving them a thorough rinsing under running water or letting them soak in a bath of water for 20-30 minutes. You can use a bowl, the sink or even the bathtub if you've got a family. After their shower or bath, gently shake the plants to remove any excess water from the base and the leaves, and set out to dry in an area with enough air circulation to dry them out in about 4 hours. If your plants need an in-between watering, misting them with a spray bottle is a great method. A plant in bloom should be rinsed rather than submerged in water, and take care when rinsing the delicate flowers.

HOW OFTEN DO I WATER MY AIR PLANTS?

Your plants should be watered once per week, and 2-3 times is recommended for optimal care. A longer, 2-hour soak is recommended every 2-3 weeks. If you are in a drier, hotter climate, more frequent watering or misting will be needed. You'll begin to notice that after watering, your plant's leaves will feel stiffer and full of water and they'll be softer and lighter in color when they're in need of water. Wrinkled or rolled leaves can be a sign of dehydration.

TEMPERATURE

Air plants will do best in generally warm conditions (a good range is 50-90 degrees Fahrenheit). In frost-free or nearly frost-free climates they can live outside for the entire year. Like most house plants, they can be taken outside on a porch or balcony for the warm season, just don't expose them to temperature or sun extremes. 

GROOMING & AESTHETIC MAINTENANCE

Everyone needs a little grooming once in a while! It is normal for some of the lower leaves of your tillandsias to dry out as the plant grows or acclimates to a new environment, and those leaves can be gently pulled right off of the plant. If the leaf tips have dried out, you can snip the dried tip off (try trimming at an angle to leave a natural-looking pointy tip), and the same can be done for the plant's roots. Don't worry about harming your plants during grooming--they'll regrow.

Our Large Serving Bowl - Serves side salad for 6-8 people or 2 verrrrrry hungry people.

When we have dinner at Jason Michael Thomas's farm to table events in downtown Indianapolis we always go out into the yard to pick greens for the obligatory farm to table Big Ass Yard Salad and this bowl holds enough for the entire crew. It's also terrific for fruit, pasta, and a slew of other dishes to be served family style or just fill it with a few pounds of fruit as a lovely centerpiece.

Made using regional tan clay by hand on the potter's wheel by resident potter, Ryan Vanhoy, here in our studio in Indianapolis, Indiana. Each bowl varies slightly due to the handmade nature. Those variations are to be celebrated as part of the slow making movement as they show evidence of the makers involved in the process.

There has always been something special about cloth napkins. When I was a kid they were considered extra fancy. As an adult I've banished the idea of "save it for special occasions" and use cloth napkins every day. They're easy to wash and I'm not filling trash cans with barely used paper. I have cloth napkins that are over 20 years old that we still use and love.

We chose Meema brand cotton napkins because their company is in keeping with our values. They design kitchen and home textiles with upcycled denim and cotton to be as sustainable as possible. Like us, they believe that every product should be designed for the ideal combination of joy and function with ethics at the center of it all. 

Their napkins and aprons are made with fibers discarded by jeans manufacturers and yarn mills that would be discarded as waste. They give them a second life and their own waste is used by coffee growers as a natural compose, returning to the earth and continuing the cycle. Their manufacturing process uses minimal resources and energy. For every kg of upcycled material, 20,000 liters of water are saved.

It's just another reason to love using cloth napkins.
