This set of nesting bowls was inspired by dragon scales. These are all handmade using a pinch pot method making each piece organic and unique in form. Each of the hundreds of dragon scales were individually pressed in by hand. The bowls are glazed with a beautiful shiny deep iridescent emerald green on the outside contrasted by the satiny eggshell finish of agate like crystaline glaze on the inside. They are lead free and food safe. They are microwaveable but notsuggested for use in the oven. They will be quite the conversation piece when you serve up dinner to family or guests.
