What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “pottery”? No doubt, it’s probably a bowl. And why not? Ceramic bowls have been around for thousands of years and have become an integral part of most households. These days you can find some pretty stunning coloring options too! If you’re looking for something special for your next dinner party or family gathering, consider getting a set of ceramic soup bowls. They can be used frequently without developing any kind of color degradation or chipping, which is great if you like to change up your collection frequently. They are also very affordable, so they’re a great way to get started with handcrafted pottery while at the same time giving yourself plenty of room to grow! Ceramic soup bowls are usually made from stoneware clay that has experienced a high degree of temperature treatment to prevent discoloration; this makes them ideal for serving hot soups and stocks. The by far most common material for this purpose is stoneware clay, but there are several different types available as well. We’ll take you through everything you need to know about these bowls in order to help you choose the right one for your needs!

What is a ceramic Soup bowls?

A ceramic bowl is a type of stoneware ware used for serving soups and stews. Often, but not exclusively, these types of ceramic are formed by molding together a mixture of fired clay and water. The clay is fired at a high temperature, causing it to become very hard and dry. As the clay cools, it hardens further without being permanently transformed into stone. This means that when the clay is burned, it leaves behind only a ceramic bowl. While there are many different types of clay, stoneware is a popular material for bowls due to its stability, ease of use in the kitchen, and its ability to resist staining.

How to care for your ceramic bowls

Ceramic bowls are dishwasher-safe, but hand-washing is recommended for softer, less scratchy ones. To care for your ceramic bowls, simply rinse them well and let them air dry. Whenever possible, store them flat so that they don’t get scratched or dented.

 

Stoneware clay vs. porcelain vs. stoneworking

Stoneware, or obstella, is a type of high-fired pottery that’s formed by drying and firing a clay object, typically in an open kiln. Stoneware is the most stable type of pottery and while it can be chipped, it doesn’t retain color well, so it’s not ideal for serving soups and stocks. Porcelain, on the other hand, is formed by firing a variety of clays with different firing times and temperatures. The result is a delicate, colorless ceramic that is extremely scratch and stain-resistant. While each has its distinct advantages, stoneware is often referred to as “normal” or “unstressed” clay because it’s less durable than the other clays. The more durable your stoneware clay, the higher the quality of your product will be. This is why stoneware clays are typically used for outside applications like pots, mason jars, and planters.

 

How to stain and sconce your ceramic bowls

If you decide to stain or sconce your ceramic bowls, be very careful. You don’t want your new handpainted bowl to end up with a permanent blue stain on it! Staining and sconce are processes used to treat and color your pots and provide a more permanent finish. To treat, simply place your bowls in a bowl that’s about two-thirds full of water. Let them soak for about an hour, and then wash with mild soap and water. For the sconce finish, place your bowl in a very low oven (160°F) for about an hour. Sconce is a more durable finish so it’s recommended for outdoor use.

Shaped dinnerware vs. functional dinnerware

If you’re looking for a functional dinner bowl, look no further! Most dinnerware is made to be broken in half or thirds. This means that the bowl has a concave bottom with a flat top. If you’d like to use your dinnerware for more than just serving soups and stews, consider getting a set of dinner plates. Plates are often made in a greater size to accommodate larger meals while serving dishes are often made in a smaller size to serve smaller meals. functional dinnerware is generally dishwasher safe but is not resistant to chipping or corrosion, so it’s recommended to handwash.
