Delightfully simple and perfectly functional, the yarn bowl feeds your yarn through the curved opening, allowing it to unravel in place as you continue knitting away! Sculpted from stoneware on the pottery wheel by North Carolina artisans, the yarn bowl is glazed in white and high-fired for lasting durability.

I sat here and tried to come up with something negative to say, because I like giving balanced reviews. The only thing that I could think of is that it's slightly smaller than I was hoping, but by far large enough to handle any standard-sized skeins (which have been, obviously, unraveled and then rolled into balls; a floppy oblong skein of run-of-the-mill soft yarn would work, but it would flop over the edge). This isn't made for over-sized skeins of crochet thread, it's made for a ball of yarn.
Since I'm a secret fan of earthy ceramics, I was expecting the color variation (mine is more of a teal or aquamarine in places, and a deep cobalt in others, with thin bits of naked-but-glazed clay here and there along with a few areas where the color bubbled), and to be honest it's more aesthetically pretty in person than I thought it would be. There aren't any rough edges on the curlicue bit where the yarn feeds through, either.
It's all-around a great bowl and receiving a lot of use. We have cats and were worried that one of these two would see it broken within a week, but we've had it for almost five months now and have had no incidents, even when one of them has walked off with the end of the yarn and carried it throughout the house (leaving the yarn ball still inside the bowl on the counter).
