Our friends at Jono Pandolfi are known for making beautiful ceramic dishware that is durable enough to stand up to the wear and tear of restaurant kitchens. In fact, you might have been served dinner on a Jono Pandolfi plate if you've dined at Eleven Madison Park, Jean-Georges, the MoMA's restaurant and café, Razza and many other fine-dining establishments.

We met the Pandolfi brothers a few years ago and have been tossing around spice-related pottery ideas ever since. It turns out that they've never made a bowl with a lid, so we thought this would be the perfect excuse. To celebrate our 5th anniversary, Jono Pandolfi used their foundational dark brown clay and paired it with a custom colored glaze that echoes our signature rich burgundy. Each bowl is stamped with the Burlap & Barrel logo.

The result is a hand-thrown, bespoke spice mixing bowl that uses a combination of traditional techniques such as slip casting, jiggering, and good old-fashioned wheel throwing. They're hand-thrown in New Jersey, in a warehouse on a cliff overlooking the Hudson River. 

We've been using these bowls in our home kitchens to make DIY spice blends, as pinch bowls, salt cellars and even for coffee and tea because the lid keeps them hot. They're beautiful, functional and very well made. The bowl is deep enough to thoroughly mix your spices without any risk of spilling, and the lid helps keep your spice blend fresh on your countertop. We hope this bowl will inspire you to experiment with your own spice blends!

  • Style: Handmade and hand-glazed ceramic bowl with lid
  • Size: 4" x 4", holds about 4 fluid oz
  • Material: US-sourced, food-safe ceramic and glaze. Dishwasher- and microwave-safe!

Please note that this is handmade, hand-glazed pottery and every piece is unique. You may notice slight variations in texture and glaze - they're not imperfections, they're indications of the handmade, artisanal nature of this very special spice bowl.
