Pele's Fire Crater Bowl
This Crater Bowl is a limited edition made by artist Ben Diller.
For Hawaiians, the volcano is the living expression of Goddess Pele. Our lava bowls are a tribute to her beauty. The rough hewn outer edges are her a'a lava. The smooth bottom are her pahoehoe lava. The glossy center represents her glowing streams of molten hot lava.
Each hand formed clay piece is fired in a kiln to 2000 F. Molten hot, it is placed in a pit with Keawe wood shavings that spontaneously ignite. The combination of earth, fire, and intense heat evokes the power of the volcano.
Each piece is hand made and will differ slightly from the item pictured.
The Crater bowl measures 3" wide and 1.5" tall. A rope loop base is included for display.
