These rustic, 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 variations in finish, size and colour. The bowls are predominantly kelp coloured, lots of brown, grey and deep blue with splashes of light blue, green and black here and there. There is no particular pattern. No matter which bowl you get it will be different from any other.
How efficient is this bowl? Watch the video by scrolling the images. Using Martin de Candre Shaving Soap and this bowl I effortlessly lather up an awesome, rich, creamy lather.
We asked Stef to make the bottom of the bowls ridged internally so the user can generate a shaving lather easily. The 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. Suitable for all sizes of shaving brushes.
Stef Baxter produces pottery with a Neolithic/Celtic feel to it. 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: 135mm
Base diameter: 50mm
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.
This is a true artisan product, lovingly made in small batches of exclusively for Executive Shaving by Stef Baxter in Glasgow. Unique as each bowl is different due to the nature of the pottery wheel manufacturing process and the colouring technique used by Stef.
