This stunning blue & white fish ceramic range is produced by a small family business located in the Almeria region of southern Spain. Over the generations they have developed a very specific and stylish way of making their tabletop ceramics. Firstly the ceramics are handmade, the pieces are then dipped in a white clay paint and the artist then “draws” the design by carving into the white coating and into the brown clay, leaving an indented imprint of the design. Each piece is individually signed by the artist and hand-painted with rich and contrasting colours. They are then glazed and fired in the kiln. Many others have tried to copy this process and failed which is why this range is so unique.
This superbly coastal ceramic range has sold well in Stein’s Gift Shop for many years and is a new addition to our on-line shop for Christmas this year.
These pasta bowls have a diameter of 23cm and are the perfect size for serving a generous portion of spaghetti alle vongole, or indeed a bowl of moules marinieres.
Ovenproof - however, when heating ceramics bowls up, you must always heat up slowly and cool down slowly to avoid thermal shock
