The Perfect Begging Bowl...

I always have an eye out for that perfect bowl;
one which can be caressed in the hands for warmth
when filled with hot soup or red beans & rice
but also holds an ample dinner size portion...


I'm delighted to say I found a "functional beauty" a few weeks back
in the work of Lucia "Verde" Welsh.  Thrown, multi-glazed and gas-fired,
this substantially sided bowl was everything I wanted in a 
BEGGING BOWL!


I like to call it a Begging Bowl because it is the right size to hold
a meal's worth of sustenance be it a hearty winter stew or 
green tossed summer salad...


And YES, it fits oh so comfortably in the hand while complementing
all it holds and all who hold it!  Thank you, Lucia...
