The Pasta Dishes and Serving Bowl set that I made was all about the shape of the dish. A hybrid low like with a slight concave like a bowl so you and place the pasta on the dish. Great presentation and not have to worry about the sauce going to the edge of the dish. And, in addition a serving bowl about 13 inches across and about 5 inches deep perfect for a large bowl of Pasta or salad.
Also great for a pasta party bone-white matte glaze will show off your wonderful red, pesto, or cream sauce. The under area is half dipped so you have the clay texture exposed. The clay is a mix of porcelain and light clay that has some texture. Please check out our site and for this set or other ceramic pieces.
