Bridges Pottery Yarn Bowls will manage your ball of yarn while you knit or crochet. This special bowl is designed to allow the yarn to unravel while it stays in the bowl. Bridges Pottery’s design offers excellent stability, with a well-weighted bowl and a full broad shape.
Set your Bridges Pottery Yarn Bowl on a nearby table, floor or flat surface. Place your ball of yarn in the bowl and feed it through the keyhole or one of the single holes. Turn it slightly away from you so that the squiggly keyhole is facing a bit away from you. This allows the line to unfurl in the direction of the end of the keyhole and towards you. It may take a few tries to get it the way you like it but once you start knitting you will love it!
Made one-by-one, every bowl has its own special character and is lovely to be left on a table or perched on a shelf while waiting to be used. Each one is hand thrown on the potter’s wheel and then carefully cut to create the “wave” key hole for the yarn to travel through.
Made of stoneware, your yarn bowl is sturdy but fragile around the keyhole. Clean with a soft damp cloth, never pick up the bowl by the keyhole arm.
Care & Use Guides
Your Bridges Pottery is food friendly and my glazes are free of both lead and cadmium and are in accordance with Prop 65.
Bridges Pottery is durable and can be put in the microwave, dishwasher (with good judgment) and oven. Hand washing is always a better choice. Wash with soap and hot water and soft sponge.
Never put a cold pot in a hot oven – put it in a warm oven and let it heat up. Thermal shock will break pottery. Never use my stoneware pieces on a stovetop or open flame.
Wash with soap and hot water and soft sponge.
Each piece is handmade and hand glazed. My pots and decorative pieces are all signed and show a high quality of craftsmanship. Each piece had a long journey to get to you, and with proper care it will last a lifetime.
My unique "Strike it Up" match strikers are my own special design. Use this stoneware match striker on your mantle or table. Only “strike anywhere” matches will ignite when striking them on the unglazed portion of the piece.
Hold the match at a slight angle against unglazed clay for best results. Be sure the white tip of the match is intact when striking. Rest your used match on the rim. You can purchase “strike anywhere” matches at hardware/ home supply stores.
If you are having difficulty getting
your match to light please check
to see you have fresh matches and they are the correct type. Strike anywhere matches will strike on any hard surface that can cause friction so the unglazed area on the piece is the strike area. Watch the demonstration in the video.
