Someone recently sent me this picture of one of my bowls in use, the best way to see them in my opinion. Tomato garlic soup with freshly shaved parmesan cheese and a croissant all nestled in a black and white slip trailed terra cotta bowl. Though there are a number of cons to working with terra cotta but one pro is that the clay is warmed up by the soup and keeps the whole meal toasty right up to that last swipe made with the croissant. The bigger question at the moment is; "what's for dinner?".
