Bread Bowl

So I have been wanting a bread bowl for quite some time now. And this was waiting for me at the "Lemonade Art Fair" .

The God of Queer Kitchen Items Smiled.

I was especially pleased to learn that I could bake in it if I want to and it is large enough to knead two large loaves of bread in.

The potter explained that the leaves are made by placing leaves from a tree in the underglaze, putting the over glaze on top and then the leaves and the glaze atop them burn up as the kiln fires leaving the pattern.

My grandmother and Baba were weeping in heaven that I was making bread in a plastic tub. They were both thrifty ladies but drew the line at plastic.
