Heart of Stoneware

More than just adding a warm, organic accent to your decor, these decorative bowls seem to carry with them deep roots in the soil from which they came. That soil can be found in fertile land of Nicaragua and was brought to life by the hands of master potter Jose Guerrero. Working at his studio in the town of San Juan de Oriente, Guerrero crafts the vessels by hand. Each one has an exterior scored with countless, fine vertical lines, while the interior offers a contrasting smoothness. The rustic, undulating lip of the bowls, as well as their mottled, stone-like finish only serve to enhance their earthy origins.

The largest of the trio is broad enough to accommodate apples and oranges, an abundant bouquet of flowers, while the innermost bowl is small enough to hold berries or nuts, or even to host the contents of your pockets at the end of a long day. The bowls can be used together or apart, for function or display--all the while bringing ancient artistry into modern living. Handmade in Nicaragua.
