I've been coveting these bowls for some time now as they're the chosen bowls for the beans and chile course of   / shed project dinners. They're simplicity, thinness, color, and exact amount of depth needed make them the preferred bowls in our home as well.

Brandon Adriano Ortiz, originally from Taos and Taos Pueblo works in tradition with micaceous clay he locally forages and pit fires. Brandon often soaks his clay body and slip for months before use, allowing the fermentation to support the tone and quality of his clay.
