This yarn bowl is one of the "alpaca" carved pieces that Mike has made for us. The cobalt blue glaze on this porclein bowl is a deep rich blue fired in our Minnesota Flat top glaze kiln. This piece has a good weight to it, so it will not topple over as the yarn is pulled from inside. It's size would fit for the medium to large sized yarn ball as it measures 3.75 inches tall and 6.25 inches across.
Beside being the "farm hand", my husband Mike, is an art teacher and potter. Here at the farm he has created his studio amoungst the alpacas. All hand made pottery is produced in the studio using stoneware or porcelain clay. The pottery is fired in our cone 10 hybrid Wood/salt gas kiln, or in our high fired Minnisota Flat Top glaze kiln. All glazes are food safe, dishwasher safe, and made here on the farm.
