Porcelain Pinch Bowls | Barbara Walch


SKU: C454-17823

A perfect dessert or cereal bowl! These pinch pots are made in porcelain and finished with a light green-blue celadon glaze by potter Barbara Walch of Thorndike, Maine. This light glaze gently pools in the leftover gestures and finger marks, bits of evidence showing the maker’s process as she built up the walls of the pot. Three are currently available, $32 each.
