neil hoffmann : fold bowl
The distinctive folded rim of these bowls is characteristic of Neil’s work, gently bringing attention to the essential, earthy qualities of the clay and its human collaborator. A slightly deeper form than the pasta bowl, you could serve anything from porridge through to pasta and pudding in one of these beauties. Though perhaps not all at once.

Every fold bowl is hand thrown, so while each one is similar to its siblings, the piece you receive will not necessarily be the one in the photograph.
From his studio in Reedy Marsh, Tasmania, ceramicist Neil Hoffmann creates densely textural pieces which bring organic form and function to the table. In a practice spanning four decades, Neil has developed an intimate relationship to the land where he works, often incorporating clays from his immediate local environment. He also works with porcelain and whole dolerite rocks, using both wood burning and gas-fired kilns. The maker is privileged to share this uniquely organic tableware.
