Each 7 inch ceramic bowl is individually hand shaped on a potter´s wheel and hand painted with a paint brush. It is signed on the bottom by the artist in Spain. Holes on the back rim allow for hanging. Lead free and food safe. It is dishwasher safe though hand washing is recommended. It is not intended for use in the oven. Please take care if used in the microwave since ceramics tend to get hot to the touch when heated.
