Perfect Pop

Keep those rogue kernels from ruining your perfect batch of popcorn with this innovative bowl designed by ceramicist Catherine Smith. Featuring a clever, colander-inspired bottom, this handsomely glazed stoneware server holds a full batch of popcorn while filtering out all the kernels that just couldn't get their act together. They become trapped in a secret compartment at the bottom for convenient disposal once you enjoy the pristine popcorn and lift out the removable filtering disk. Beyond this unique function, it’s a substantial and handsomely glazed piece that makes an inviting fruit bowl or centerpiece between movie nights. The twice-fired stoneware ensures durability to make this an essential fixture for couch time with family and friends for years to come. Made in Portland, Oregon.

The Popcorn Bowl with Kernel Sifter is a serving bowl for already popped popcorn. Bowl not intended for use in popping corn.

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

Catherine Smith grew up in rural Pennsylvania and fell in love with clay at first “touch” during a high school art class. She refined her craft while earning a B.F.A., and has been designing and creating fine stoneware pottery for more than 30 years. Her work embodies classic, elegant lines and the idea of creating beautiful, functional ware that can be used every day to enrich our lives. Catherine lives and works in Hidden Valley, Nevada with her husband, Bill and black lab, Schiatzy.

Founded in 2006 in a Portland basement, Mudshark Studios specializes in small batch, custom ceramic manufacturing. Utilizing knowledge and experience that very few in the ceramics manufacturing community have, the studio built a business that gives designers and ceramic artists the option of having their products produced in the U.S.A.

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how The Popcorn Bowl with Kernel Sifter qualified for the Collection:

Original Design

Unlike ordinary popcorn bowls, our bowl incorporates a removable sifter at the bottom that filters out unpopped kernels for a better eating experience. Fitting into the bottom of the bowl and concealing a hidden collection compartment, this feature is integrated into the bowl's design and materials (both are stoneware).

Responsible Business Practices

            This turned out to be better than I had hoped, I thought it was a mass produced piece, but it turned out to be a handmade piece that was handcrafted for the parts to go together. Very happy with this bowl, and it will be used for much more than just popcorn!

              This is the second popcorn bowl we have ordered. We use ours ALL the time. It's very attractive and the popcorn seems to taste better when served in the bowl, hmmmm.... Our daughter liked it so much, we gave one to her for a wedding shower gift!

              Comments about UncommonGoods The Popcorn Bowl with Kernel Sifter:

              Really neat idea, but be warned that this bowl is made of a heavy ceramic material.
              It is beautiful and quite functional, separating and collecting the unpopped kernals and crumbs in the reservoir at the bottom. But it is probably too heavy for regular use.
              A plastic version of this bowl would be awesome!

              Service and delivery comments:

              The customer service from this company is quite honestly the best I have EVER experienced'. My first bowl arrived broken (it looked like the box had been dropped).
              I emailed the customer service address expecting to hear back from them in a few days... I was actually contacted in a few HOURS! The rep was incredibly friendly and helpful! The email exchanges were so prompt it felt like a "chat room", and my replacement bowl arrived within a few days, safe and without hassle!

                I bought this for my dad who loves popcorn. He really likes it and says the sifter does a great job of catching the kernels. His only complaint is that it is a little heavy to have sitting on his lap so he keeps it on the table next to the couch.
