These stoneware shaving bowls are individually handmade made in Glasgow, Scotland by the acclaimed potter Stef Baxter. Stef 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.
Each bowl is unique, expect slight variations in size and colour. Choose from two colours blue or green. Both colours benefit from off white coloured clouds and specks of grey here and there. No matter which bowl you get it will be different from any other.
The bowls have a base that doubles as a grip ensuring a firm grasp even when 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.

* Height: 60mm
* Bowl maximum diameter: 105mm tapering to 70mm
