How do I bake mini earthenware bowls in the oven?

This step-by-step guide will teach you how to bake cute and functional mini stoneware bowls in the oven. This is an inviting guide to creating unique pieces that are both decorative and useful.


Preparing the pottery

Make sure the mini bowls are made from suitable earthenware that is oven safe. Start by thoroughly cleaning the bowls. Rinse them with warm water and mild soap to remove dirt and dust. Then dry the bowls carefully with a clean cloth and allow them to air dry completely before continuing.

Place the clean and dry bowls in the oven to preheat them. Set the oven to the correct temperature according to the pottery's instructions. Let the bowls heat up slowly to avoid shock. Once the bowls are at the right temperature, they are ready to use for your culinary creations.


Glazing the bowls

Apply desired glaze evenly to the bowls according to the glaze's instructions. Start by stirring the glaze with a brush to ensure it is well mixed. Then apply an even layer of glaze to the inside and outside of the bowls. Make sure no drips or clumps remain and work quickly to avoid streaks. Then let the glaze dry according to the time indicated on the package.

Once the glaze is completely dry, place the bowls in the oven according to the temperature and time indicated on the glaze package. Remember to check that the bowls are positioned correctly in the oven and are not touching each other. Let the oven heat up to the correct temperature before placing the bowls. After baking, carefully remove the bowls from the oven and let them cool before using them. Enjoy your beautiful handmade bowls with a perfectly applied glaze!


Bake in the oven

Preheat the oven to the correct temperature according to the pottery instructions:

  • Check which temperature is recommended for baking the bowls.
  • Set the oven to this specific temperature.
  • Make sure the oven is fully heated before continuing.

Place the bowls on a baking tray and bake for the recommended time:

  • Carefully place the bowls on a baking tray.
  • Make sure that the bowls have enough space between each other and the edge of the baking tray.
  • Carefully slide the baking tray with the bowls into the preheated oven.
  • Bake the bowls for the recommended time, following the instructions provided with the pottery.

Cool and check

Carefully remove the bowls from the oven and let them cool completely. Make sure you do this in a place where they can't stay too warm and have airiness. This allows even cooling to take place. Consider the following steps:

  • Handle the bowls carefully with oven mitts to avoid burning.
  • Place them on a rack or mat to allow the heat to spread evenly.
  • Do not leave the bowls in the oven as the residual heat can continue the baking process and possibly affect the texture of your creation.

Check whether the bowls are well baked and shiny. Good control ensures that you can be sure that your dish is perfectly cooked and ready to be served. Follow these steps to check quality:

  • Check the color of the bowls, they should have a golden brown tint.
  • Gently tap the bottom of the bowls, they should sound hollow to indicate they are done.
  • Check that the outside of the bowls is shiny and crispy, this indicates a perfectly cooked result.

Enjoy your mini bowls

After cooling, the mini bowls are ready for use. Enjoy your homemade pottery and use it for tasty snacks or decoration.

  • First rinse the bowls with lukewarm water and dry them thoroughly with a soft cloth.
  • Place the mini bowls on a beautiful dish or tray to present them.
  • Fill the bowls with your favorite snacks, such as nuts, olives, or dried fruit.
  • Also use the bowls as decorative elements in the home, for example to store small jewelry or as plant pots.
  • Don't forget to occasionally clean the bowls with a mild dishwashing liquid and then dry them thoroughly.
