    The Many Uses for “Ring Bowls”

    April 15th, 2015

    There is a growing obsession with these tiny bowls, especially for wedding gifts, favors, or bridesmaids’ gifts. And I can’t help but be enthralled with them myself! In fact, I’ve made several, from the teeny, tiny dish to the large bowl! (OK, not that large, if it’s still to be called a ring bowl!)


    The dishes have a few obvious uses:

    • on a nightstand before bed, to place your everyday jewelry
    • on a windowsill for your rings, for doing dishes
    • on a table right inside the front door, for spare change


    But what about the ring bowls? They don’t seem to be as popular, but I would argue they should be even more desirable than their dish counterparts, because they have many more uses! They can do anything a dish can do, plus more!


    A ring bowl can be used:

    • to hold more jewelry than just your everyday pieces (I use one to hold all my rings)
    • to hold men’s items, like collar stays and cuff links
    • to collect spare buttons
    • to hold coin, button, bead collections
    • candle or tea light holders
    • to hold hair clips, bobbi pins, hair ties
    • to hold desk items, like paper clips and extra staples
    • in the bathroom for cotton balls and Q-tips
    • and finally, because our pottery is perfect for use every day in the kitchen, you can use these small bowls for food! Cereal, grapes, goldfish, you name it!


    So why aren’t you collecting ring bowls?
