Enjoy your just bee ceramic serving bowl hand painted by Dana Simson with a honey bee and floral pattern. This was an addition I created for a dinner service of 16 in my Just Bee design. It is perfect sized, ideal for serving salads or pasta at 11 inches across and 5 inches high. I created the painting and concept for my Just Bee design after hearing about the of the plight of bees, especially here in America where pesticides are impacting their populations. Bees are so important to maintaining our food supply I felt it was important to honor them. The phrase “Just Bee” has the double meaning of acceptance of being and a nod to our honey bee friends. “Just Bee” is one of my most popular designs and is available in jewelry, clocks, car art stickers or a print of the original painting.
The Just Bee ceramic salad bowl contains a message.
I write “Just Bee” on the bottom of each bowl. When you give or use a piece with the Just Bee design, somehow there is a feeling of centering and optimism offered. I believe it is because deep down we each understand truly precious nature of the gifts bees extend to us. They pollinate flowers and trees that would not be able to seed without them. Bees make honey, a golden sweetness full of health for both their hives food source and other animals like us that help themselves to a share. Bees devote themselves to the needs of others. Maybe this is their greatest gift.
All our dinnerware is food safe. You can put your just bee ceramic bowl in the dish washer, but with any ceramic other then commercial high fire porcelain, after a while the high temperature and rapid cooling can cause crazing. Crazing causes a fine network of lines in the glaze. It does not compromise the use of the piece. Some glazes are actually chemically mixed to craze as it lends a vintage look to ceramic.
