This artisan made, handcrafted shaving bowl was specially designed and created for Wet The Face from designer Alford Wayman of Creek Road Pottery.
This bowl is crafted for lathering shaving soap and textured on the outside for beauty and grip. This stoneware piece was hand-crafted in the USA on my pottery wheel and textured outside with a wood rasp. I glazed this bowl "Blue Dawn", created by the late ceramic artist and teacher Janet Holdcraft, donated by her friend and colleague artist Jerry C. Williams Sr., who put the glaze "Blue Dawn" in the public domain. The outside contains a wash of red iron oxide to bring out the texture in the raw clay and fired to 2232˚F in my gas kiln.
Creek Road Pottery LLC is a small studio in the hills of Northern Pennsylvania, making small batches of handmade ceramics.
