Our heirlooms are cracked with imperfect glaze. My dad made them and when I went to college they were one of the few things that came with me. These have seen my college apartment, our first home and us becoming husband and wife. Now Hughes and Jettie. They’ve made banana bread, Hughes Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies, pumpkin muffins and doughs of pie, pizza, and pasta. They nestle together perfectly and sit in a special place in our new kitchen, designed around them with handmade Zeilgle tile and open shelving to show them off.
When Hughes and Jettie move on to their own adventures they will each take one along on their travels through life to remember our sun filled kitchen and hundreds of meals made from these bowls. But for now we’ll enjoy our current favorite pasta. Lemon with cracked pepper and brown butter.
