Possibly our favourite and most used piece of the collection. The grain bowl has an open form with an elegant curve. Comfortable to cradle in hands when dining informally and deep enough that there's no risk of spilling broth-based meals. Makes also the perfect serving bowl for sides.

The grain bowl is a generously sized bowl to serve all manner of meals in. Pile in the pasta, grains, noodles and broths or build flavour and texture in layers.
Easy to hold and eat from when dining away from the table. Settle into the sofa and let the grain bowl bring the feast to you.
With its wide, open form, it also functions as a serving dish for salads or leafy sides. Alternatively it can be piled high with seasonal fruit on countertops.
The making of
Out of the fire
Our ceramics are made by a family-run factory in Portugal. They source clay locally and craft the pieces into our designed shapes. Before the pieces are completed, they are dipped in our unique glazes and single-fired, a process which minimises emissions.

Yes, our manufacturer carries out thorough tests to ensure the clays and glazes are safe and 100% lead-free
Yes, all our stoneware products are safe to use in the oven and microwave, to a temperature of 250 ºC. Steer clear of placing pieces straight from the oven on to a cold surface, as a measure against shock resistance.
Yes, absolutely. Our ceramics have high thermal shock resistance, and will withstand temperature variations as low as -20 ºC.
Yes, our products can be washed daily in the dishwasher. To ensure our dishes last longer it is advisable to space them so they don’t rub or bump against each other during the cycle. We recommend you wash the larger and more delicate pieces by hand, as a precaution.
