Silk Road pasta bowl. The pasta bowl is painted on the inside and rim and is natural terra cotta on the outside. The bowl measures 11 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall. It is a great size for serving salads, pastas and much more. Very striking! Our Silk Road patten was inspired by the ancient trade route that brought trade goods but also knowledge and culture from the far east to Europe in the middle ages. The world would never progressed without the mixing of cultures. The edge and the background are Chinese, the flowers are from ancient designs of Persia, India and Egypt. The small blue flowers are British wildflowers.
