White Whale Bowl


Seamlessly transition from casual lunch to festive get-together with these porcelain whale bowls by Anja Bartels. Each wheel-thrown bowl features a diving humpback whale and the potter’s signature “Key West Blue” glaze on the interior. Anja’s designs are inspired by her love of the ocean and childhood memories of growing up in a port city on the North Sea. 

About Anja Bartels
Originally from Hamburg, Germany, Anja discovered pottery making while living in an intentional community in Virginia. Her passion ignited, she returned home to study in the German Ceramics Guild. After completing a three-year apprenticeship with a master potter, Anja received her journeyman ceramics degree from the German Chamber of Crafts and Trades. She is now an artist-in-residence at Odyssey ClayWorks in Asheville, NC.

Please Note: Each whale bowl is individually hand-thrown, painted, and carved. Slight variations should be expected and embraced. This uniqueness is part of the handmade nature of the work.
