Maneki Neko "Lucky Cat" Small Bowlbowl_sm_neko
This small bowl features our lucky cat "Maneki Neko" screen printed in black enamel over a Japanese geometric design, printed in gold mica, onto transparent red-orange glass, then fused in a kiln to about 1400 degrees. Glass is then cold worked, returned to the kiln to drape into final shape at about 1250 degrees.
This dish is screen printed, kiln formed glass, 5" round and about 2" high. The bottom disc of glass is cut a little larger to create a lip of color at the top edge. Because the pieces are draped over a stainless steel mold, the inside is slightly matte, creating a nice contrast with the super shiny outside. Small bowls are great for fruit, olive or nut bowls, salsas and dips, hold small trinkets and make cute decorative accents. They are food safe and we recommend hand washing, though they can go in the dishwasher (we like the China cycle for glass).
This design is part of a series and has other matching housewares! This comes packed in colorful tissue, please let us know if you need a gift box.
