Yoshizawa-gama

益子焼 Yoshizawa kiln elephant bowl(small version)

$24.00 USD

Big ears, long nose, small fangs, thin tail, and round eyes. This elephant bowl expresses all the cute elements of elephants. 

The tail is like a cute child elephant who has not yet grown fangs. We tied a ribbon :). (The bigger version does not have a ribbon).

The color is finished with a muted "greige" that looks like a combination of dark beige and gray, giving it a perfect elephant-like look. 

It's an oval shape that is a bit unusual, but it's surprisingly easy to use. It is just the right size for a dessert cup or a small side dish bowl. Of course, Its also cute as a children's dish.

There is also a slightly larger "elephant bowl". It's a perfect size for a baby elephant to fit in, so it's perfect for stacking. It seems like it would be fun to actually use it with parents and children.
