This pair of versatile fair trade pinch bowls is hand thrown in Indonesia.

Pinch bowls make a great way to serve salt and pepper or other combinations such as a pair of dips, tartare sauce and lemon wedges, olives and toothpicks, sugar and spoon etc. The bowls can even be used as tea light holders.

These bowls are made in Lombok, Indonesia by potters working with fair trade co-operative, Lombok Pottery Centre and are based on a traditional design.

Two colours: black & tamarind

made from:

Lombok Pottery products are hand thrown from red earthenware clay. They are burnished with a hard object to smoothen and polish. Following the firing process the pottery is skilfully pulled out while still hot using iron tongs and covered in rice bran; the reaction with the oxides carbonises the clay body, creating the black finish. The tamarind colour is created by spraying the hot pottery with natural tamarind extract which fuses with the clay to create the reddish, speckled finish.

As they are hand-formed and coloured no two items are the same and variations in the size, colour and finish may occur. The natural oils from the rice bran or small patches of natural earthenware brown may show through - this often adds to the attractiveness of the product.

Clean with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge in warm, soapy water. Before storage leave to dry completely.

Microwave and oven safe.

Lombok Pottery complies with the Ceramic Articles in Contact with Food (England) Regulations 2006 (EC Directives 84/500 & 2005/31EC).

Kartimarket has had a long term partnership with the Lombok Pottery Centre for a number of years and we visit them to hand-pick products and collaborate to design & develop new ones. The products are imported directly to the UK.
