Double-Dipper

We've all experienced it. You grab your soup and you think you've got the crackers under control. But before you know it, preventing your soup from sloshing becomes your priority, those crackers become an afterthought and the inevitable happens; your salty sides take a dive onto the floor, crumbs shuffle off, and in trying to prevent one mess, you end up with a bigger one. Poor crackers always get the brush off!

Finally, your crunchy companions have a home, right where they belong, nestled next to your soup. This hand-sculpted piece by Brian Kunkelman lets you end the juggling act and concentrate on satisfying your comfort food cravings. Each piece is coated with a lovely food-safe glaze that emphases the concentric ripples molded into the clay. And while it provides the perfect place to pair hearty helpings of soup or chili and crackers, this piece is also perfectly suited for dips of all sorts, as well as sweet combinations, like ice cream and cookies. Handmade in Pennsylvania.

“Each pot requires the same care and attention, whether you're making one or a hundred...and I try to be conscious that this pot's going to be part of someone's life.”

“There’s a fine line between a rut and a groove,” potter Brian Kunkelman likes to say. This sentiment underscores the delicate balance required to hand-throw his designs with the right mix of consistency and hand-crafted variation that makes each piece one-of-a-kind. Brian is a potter who seems to go with the flow, a metaphor that runs through his studio and craft—from the water that flows through the cultivated pond outside his studio window, to the variety of music that flows through his speakers (equidistant from his potter’s wheel), and the meditative motion of working with stoneware clay. Using little more than his hands and his trusty, powered foot wheel, he deftly coaxes clay into clever bowls that meld organic elegance with utility.

Disclaimer: I did not buy this from Uncommon Goods. However I worked in a galley where we sold these. I love them, I use them all the time. Ice cram and cookies, chili and chips, dip and crackers, you name it, you can use these bowls. They are hand thrown, heavy stoneware with lovely glazes. A pair of these bowls is a great gift for a couple, perfect for snuggling with a hearty bowl of soup and some warm bread.

I was rather disappointed of the clumpsiness of the unit. It seemed to be stronger that it was. In shipping although they are sold in pairs only one in gift box, and that was the one that broke. I was buying for a family of four, which turned out to be costly. I was looking for something that would make life easier, this definately did not.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Soup and Crackers Bowl:

    Will be Christmas gift for my son who is law school. I'm sure he will love it. He likes to makes soups and chili.
    I do wish bottom was smoother. I'm concerned it will scratch counter or table top. I was told this is oven safe between 400 -500 degrees. It would be nice if this information was included in shipping package.

          This works really good for cherries, olives or anything with a pit! The cracker part of the bowl is perfect for the pits.
