Captain's Choice - Lather Bowl - Magma
That's right–volcanic in nature, as though having emerged from the depths of the earth and beginning to harden. The deep mahogany-colored base provides the background to a darker stripe overlay that imparts an appropriate note of mystery.
Handcrafted by a local potter to our specifications, each lather bowl begins as a lump of clay on a potter's wheel. The beauty of this handmade item is that each one will differ slightly. The natural differences in the glaze along with the individual craftsmanship of each bowl ensures that no two will be exactly the same.* They measure approximately 4 1/2" wide and 1 1/2" deep and will appear similar to the one that is pictured.
Ridges on the bottom expedite the lathering process, and the low profile eliminates the "clinking" of the brush against the sides. In addition, the contoured sides help contain the lather. The convenient "button" with our signature compass rose on the side adds a touch of class while also serving a functional role. With lather bowl in your palm and thumb on the textured button, you will find the bowl planted securely in your palm as you lather—perfect!
*As with any handmade item each piece will vary slightly in size and finish.
