Ember bowls had numerous uses: they could be used as braziers, or for transporting embers from one fire to make another. They could be used to light smoking pipes, or they were used simply to warm one’s hands and feet (placed inside a wooden or metal foot warmer). Our footed ember bowl is fashioned in the style of original specimens. There is a secret to using ember bowls: fill them first, about half-way, with a bed of ashes, then add a few embers. Omitting the ashes, or filling the bowl too full with embers will crack the bowl. Handmade by our local potter. 3” high by a little over 6” in diameter.
