Basalt & Pepper

Whatever is on the menu, it's going to rock when prepared and served in these earthy dishes. Ceramicist Lauren Herzak-Bauman found her inspiration for them in photos of basalt, a volcanic stone that forms in striking, angular columns. But instead of molten rock, Lauren uses porcelain slip casting in a hand-formed mold to produce the crystalline geometry of these bowls. The set of three is sturdy enough to use in food preparation, and a richly colored glaze is a visual treat at the table. When nested together, their sculptural beauty will make you want to keep them out for all to admire. Handmade in Lakewood, Ohio.

Set Includes:
- One Small Bowl
- One Medium Bowl
- One Large Bowl

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Lauren Herzak-Bauman's Studio is located in Lakewood, a suburb just outside of Cleveland. Lauren’s studio is in an old screw factory, with tall warehouse windows and high ceilings that fill the industrial space with light. Lauren found clay at a young age and studied ceramics in school. Her love for midcentury art and minimalism led her towards making sculpture. After moving back to her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio in 2013 without a job, she began to make pottery with the intention of selling at local farmer’s markets. Her work quickly took off and she found herself working as an artist full time, using her sculptural background to inform her pottery. She loves that art takes her in so many directions and continues to make and exhibit her sculptural work.
