Bare Utility Vessel | Mussel
Once we started putting leather together with porcelain we just couldn't stop. We just love the look. And now for the newest piece, the Bare Utility Vessel is perhaps the most versatile. We've used it for flowers, cutlery, wooden spoons and spatulas, and our paint brushes. The handles snap on and off for cleaning. Come summer, we'll be bringing these ceramic vessels with us to picnics too.

About the Glaze
We developed our own glaze recipes and mix them in small batches regularly. There will be variation. Our mussel glaze is a moving gun metal with a metallic sheen. An absolutely beautiful glaze it is can have matte areas as well as glossier areas depending on the piece and thickness of application. The snowflake glaze is a satin finished warm white. You will see some gentle sparkly sheen, hence the name snowflake. It is a warm white. You may see some organic specks on your piece, we do not consider these defects, just part of the handmade nature of our work.
There will be variation in color and size. No two pieces will be alike.
Our ceramics are handcrafted from durable, high quality porcelain glazed to over 2200 degrees. Our glazes are food safe and lead free. This piece is dishwasher safe. We make our tableware and accessories to be used and enjoyed everyday.
Our ceramics are handcrafted from durable, high quality porcelain. Our glazes are food safe and lead free. Our porcelain pieces are dishwasher and safe except where noted in their descriptions. For example, our bronze glaze should not be put in the microwave and this is noted in product descriptions of bronze glazed items. Although all of our pieces are dishwasher safe, hand washing will prolong the life cycle of your pottery. Dirt, stains, and metal marks from silverware (due to the ceramic being harder than the metal) particularly on our matte and semi-matte glazes, can be removed with Bar Keeper’s Friend, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, or baking soda mixed with a bit of warm water. Our tableware can be warmed in the oven but do not expose the wares to dramatic shifts in temperature – e.g. do not put hot from the oven pieces into the refrigerator or from the freezer into a hot oven- allow for gradual change in temperature. Do not place over an open flame.
