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!

Just what I needed
I often make my own spice mixtures and this lovely vessel is a welcome fixture on the counter. The lid fits nicely and keeps things fresh and fragrant when I don’t use it all. Highly recommend.
Small but mighty
Perfect size to mix and store any leftover mixes in. Looks beautiful too!
Love this spice mixing bowl
We always appreciate it when function and beauty are combined. What a great pleasure it is to use this spice mixing bowl. Even better, the uses are only constrained by your imagination as we use this for liquid and dry ingredients. It looks great sitting on your table filled with spice blends or chutneys for your family and friends to serve themselves from. I highly recommend this product.
Sturdy from New Jersey makers
Lovely, minus 1 star explained. Plus, New Yorker happy these were made in New Jersey. The burgundy glaze paired well with B&B dish towel would make good gift, but I kept them! Sturdy, not fragile heft. The unglazed color underside of lid and bottom 1 and a half inches is gray brown? Not fired identically, but reminds me of my tenmokus for heft.( Maybe doubles as a tea cup with thick lip idea.) Take away a star because 1 lid doesn't fit either well. And head of garlic storage was a failed idea. (Mold because needs vent?) Since, I have used as suggested to assemble spice mix for dry rubs and hygiene prep. Weighs in at 393.7grams and 392.4grams for the other set. Capacity to tippy top cold water ml 187.8 and 195.4. Got 2 in a year I was turned on to acquiring US artisan pottery for building tea tasting and a lever espresso bar kit. Also, looked at the collab makers website. Very cool! This was fair price all told.
Love this little fevered bowl so much that I purchased a second. Very happy
