Handmade Fluted Berry Bowl
The ideal dish for plant-forward eating, the Berry Bowl makes washing fruits and small vegetables simple and enjoyable. Glazed in a matte off-white glaze, this wheel-thrown berry bowl is finished with hand-carved fluting and small hand-carved holes that allow water to seep out of the base. The accompanying saucer allows the bowl to go from sink straight to table and act as a serving bowl perfect for breakfast or brunch.
The beauty of handmade ceramics lies in the unique variation and individual character of each piece. Skilfully hand-thrown and hand-carved using stoneware clay, each bowl is fired, glazed and re-fired in a process that takes several days to complete.
Each piece starts from natural stoneware clay and is hand-crafted, one at a time, making no two pieces exactly alike. Based in Long Island City, New York, Judy Jackson has honed her skill as a potter over decades. With a belief that design should be functional and enduring, Judy uses stoneware for its durability and finishes her pieces with custom glazes.
Judy is the founder of Tribeca Potters, a bright studio in Long Island City, New York, just outside of Manhattan. She shares the space with several other studio potters with whom she occasionally collaborates exchanging skills in throwing or glazing expertise. Before commercial glazes became widely available, many potters were handed down custom glaze recipes from the people they worked and trained with. Judy continues to use the glazes mixed in her studio according to handed down and new recipes, still favouring these to the commercial glazes widely available today.
Judy divides her time working between her shared studio in New York and one in the countryside where her work is punctuated by hikes with her two dogs.

Note: Each piece is handmade and therefore expect that every individual item will be unique. Small variations in shapes are part of the appeal of these pieces and small flecks or imperfections in the glazing are part of the hand-finishing process. We encourage you to embrace these as part of the charm of the unique artisanal process and to not look upon them as flaws. The range is finished with a matte glaze and as with all matte glazes, marks from sharp objects such as cutlery will begin to leave their trace with time and use.
