These stoneware shaving bowls are individually handmade made in Glasgow, Scotland by the acclaimed potter Stef Baxter.
They are only available from Executive Shaving. Each bowl is unique, expect slight variations in size and colour. The bowls are predominantly light green or river green as Stef calls this colour with splashes of blue and grey here and there in no particular pattern. No matter which bowl you get it will be different from any other.
The bowls are stamped 'Made in Scotland' on the base.
Each bowl benefits from a base that doubles as a grip ensuring a firm grasp even if your hands are wet.
We asked Stef to make the bottom of the bowls ridged internally so the user can generate a shaving lather easily. The raised ridges deliver traction between a shaving brush and shaving cream; no other bowl will generate a rich lather as quickly and efficiently as this bowl. The overall finish on each bowl has a charming rustic feel to it.
Suitable for all sizes of shaving brushes.
Stef Baxter produces pottery with a Neolithic/Celtic feel to it. Inspired by visits to Brittany, France, Orkney and Kilmartin Glen in Argyle, Scotland. These bowls were hand thrown on a pottery wheel then fired in an oven at 1260 degrees centigrade.
Dimensions vary from bowl to bowl but the average dimensions are:
Bowl maximum diameter: 105mm tapering to 70mm
Base diameter: 75mm
Plop a small dollop of shaving cream into the bottom of the bowl. Wet your shaving brush in warm water, flick of excess water and in a circular fashion whip the cream up into a rich lather. Don't splay the brush hairs, be gentle with the brush. The interaction between the ridges, your brush and the shaving cream will soon generate a creamy lather.
Handmade in Scotland.
