Handmade Cobalt Blue Lathering Bowl
Handmade Bowl Creation
We are very happy to be partnering with Jude Keogh to bring our customers beautiful handmade lathering bowls. Jude hand makes the pottery bowls and then glazes and fires them in her kiln. Jude is a local artisan and located in the Central West of NSW. For those who prefer to bowl lather our bowls can help with creating a thick glossy lather. The base of the bowl has raised smooth ridges designed to assist you making your lather. This handmade black shaving bowl with handle can help stabilise the bowl in your hand as you make your lather.
Shaving Bowl Information
As a result the handmade cobalt blue lathering bowl allows you to whip up a rich, creamy lather. The best way to use a lathering bowl for shaving soap is to either load your brush from the tin or container of shaving soap then take it to the lather shaving bowl. As you whip the brush in the bowl you may need to add some small amounts of water to increase lather production in the bowl until you get a nice, creamy lather. Alternatively you can simply add a small amount of your shaving soap in the base of the bowl and add a few drops of warm water at a time as you whip and build your lather with a semi wet brush.
Lathering Shave Bowl Evolution
The lathering bowl is a somewhat recent development. People have used bowls to lather in for a long time, however lather bowls are purpose-built specifically to build shaving lather with a shaving brush. The ‘rough’ or textured bottom of the lather bowls can improve lather production.
The shaving soap scuttle was designed to keep the lather warm throughout the shave. The shaving scuttle was improved with the introduction of the textured bottom helping shavers build more lather as well as keeping the lather warm. The lathering bowl was created from the shaving scuttle design and is used specifically to generate lather with a shaving brush after it has been loaded with cream or soap.
This beautiful handmade cobalt blue lathering bowl is made using a beautiful cobalt blue glaze.
