Black ceramic serving bowl
POLARIS | Stoneware bowl
These black stoneware serving bowls are part of the Asteria collection. Named by the Greek goddess of Stars this collection is characterized by as many little indents as there are stars in the sky.
This virtually infinite texture is a pure exercise of perseverance and patience. Having struggled with my mental health and having had to face some extremely traumatic events in my life I have learnt that sometimes all you can do is take it one tiny step at a time. The perseverance of those tiny steps can cover a very long distance and should never be underestimated.
Asteria is the personification of this frame of mind and this way of life; the acknowledgment that sometimes the biggest achievements are not some glorious events but a build up of many little steps, a series of small decisions and a number of tiny victories.
These bowls are meant to celebrate life’s most important fuel, food, and therefore they bear the name of the brightest of stars, Polaris. I love serving salads or storing colourful fruits in these bowls. The colours of the fruit and veggies always seem to stand out against the natural beauty of this black clay.
The whole Asteria collection is hand built in black stoneware clay and baked on 1240 degrees Celsius and therefore extremely strong, resistant and dishwasher safe.

Since all of my pieces are handmade no two items will ever be the same. I hope you will appreciate the uniqueness of each piece.
