Saggar Fired Yarn Bowl with sculptured top
Our handmade clay yarn bowls are individually decorated which makes each a unique item. Even though we carefully fire each piece in the same manner, variation occurs and gives unique qualities to the piece.
This bowl is designed for use with fibers of all types, whether it is in a cake form or a ball. The inside of the bowl is a smooth so that the yarn will not catch.
Folks ask me how I got started making these bowls. I don't knit or crochet. That said, I have a partner, my wife Brenda, who does enough knitting for the both of us (although I can always use another pair of wool socks). One of our good friends in Brenda's knitting group asked if I could make one...that started me down the path of fiber related products.
Because of the knitting group and their comments and suggestions, LickinFlames makes yarn bowls with fiber in mind. We completely understand the importance of a well crafted and detailed bowl. We also understand that fiber folks really do appreciate nice looking objects and we strive to make our bowls both fully functional and "easy on the eye."
The colors and iridescence on the pieces are hallmarks of LickinFlames. The yarn bowl takes several weeks to dry and then the finishing can take place. When the bowls are removed from the kiln and cooled, each is washed, dried and cork bumpers are added to the foot to protect your fine furniture. Approx. 6 x 4 inches

Remember that because of the handmade nature of the brooch, some variations should be expected. The quality is always the same standard that LickinFlames is known for, but some variations in color, design element placement and decoration patterns needs to be allowed. We know you will love the piece that is shipped.
