These are great bowls, solid, sturdy, well made to sit stably on a flat surface. My only quibble is with the colors, which are somewhat different from those on the same bowls that I bought a few years ago and are not quite what one might expect from "pale blue and earthen sand crackle." The blue appears mainly on the outside, below the rim, and is minimal below the rim on the inside. The sand color is more like dark brown. It's hard to know whether the present colors result from an intentional change or from unavoidable variations from lot to lot.
Compliments to Mrs. Lin's Kitchen for carrying this fine product, for reasonable prices, and for careful packing and prompt shipping.
Merchant Response:The glaze for this collection is hand done and so variation is expected. Thanks for letting us know that. Really appreciated.
