The bowls are made by our ceramic community of students, studio artists, and staff, and donated to the fundraiser. Each year our Artists-in-Residence design special chilli bowls in their signature style for the event. It's their way of giving back to the studio!

Yes! All our bowls are dishwasher, microwave, and food-safe.
