Hare in the Moonlight Bowls, 3 sizes available
Hare in the Moonlight is a new design of tableware, a part of the Irish Nocturnal Animals' range. As there are only a few larger mammals living in Ireland nowadays, it's interesting that most of them roam mostly at night. Catching a glimpse of a hare staring at the moon is magic!
The bowls are made of white porcelain clay and intricately decorated with black and coloured slips for striking contrast. In addition to the visually busy design, layers of decoration can be felt under your fingers, which adds to the tactile experience when using these pieces.
Please, note that the bowls are often slightly off-shape.
The decoration is applied by hand. Both sides of each piece are painted by layering colours and revealing design elements with paper resist stencils. While all design elements are there, each piece has a slightly different layout.
I like to think these piece will be used frequently; they are fired to very high temperature, made using high quality clay and glaze and meant to last. They are dishwasher and microwave safe. Because porcelain clay does not like sudden temperature changes, please, do not use these in the oven.
Bowls come in three sizes:
EXTRA LARGE BOWL 25 cm diameter and 15 cm tall, perfect for serving salads or as mixing bowls.
MEDIUM 17 cm in diameter and 7cm tall, perfect as smaller serving bowls, very generous breakfast cereal, soup or stew bowl
SMALL DISH 10 cm in diameter and 5 cm tall, great for nuts, nibbles, dips or as keepsake jewellery bowls.
