Please contact us for pictures of currently available pieces!

The following pieces are examples of Nishi's work. All are sealed with glaze and hold food and liquid. Additionally, they can be used in the microwave and oven (though it's best to place the bowls in the oven before preheating it), and they can be washed in the dishwasher. There are several pictures for each, including a closeup and pictures from different angles. You can find the glaze, size, price, and product number to the right of each picture, as well as the availability. Note that each bowl is one-of-a-kind, so if you are purchasing one labeled "Several available," the bowl you receive may differ slightly in shape and glaze color. However, we will try to honor your preferences if you request a certain one.
