Here at West Coast Shaving we want to make sure that you have everything you need to make your wet shaving experience out of this world. So we commissioned potter, Dorothy Brady, to create these beautiful custom shaving bowls. Designed to our specifications, this grooming utensil is just what you need to whip up an exceptional lather.
Each bowl is hand thrown on a potter's wheel, glazed, and fired by Dorothy - so each piece is unique. No two bowls will come out exactly the same. "When the kiln is loaded with a glaze firing, I wait excitedly for the opening because the glazes always surprise me," said Dorothy. "[Some glazes] seem like a chameleon. Each batch produces surprises." This bowl is a spring green color, but may vary from the picture shown as each bowl will be one of a kind.
But you can count on this bowl whipping up a luxurious lather. It is approx. 4.25" in diameter and 1.25" high (interior dimensions). The heavy stoneware holds heat, wide mouth makes it easy to whip, and the sides are designed to keep the lather in. The smooth glaze is waterproof and food, microwave, and dishwasher safe. (However, the color of the glaze could be affect by these activities). The bottom surface of the bowl is unfinished.
Reviewers agree, "This bowl is as close to perfect as I imagine I'll ever find. Fits my hand well and is a great size for a variety of brush sizes. Very, very nice."
