    The small black plastic carry out bowls used at Boston Market would make excellent shave bowls. Weightless, palm-sized, textured inside and have their own lids. May I suggest the sweet potato souffle when you feel like experimenting with one!

    Stuck?? Face lather is how GAWD intended things to be you know. Save the bowls for soup. The exception is a scuttle for warm lather. I like Dirty Bird pottery for that one.

    Fancy? Nope. Have not tried it but figure it'd have to work okay.

    I beg to differ good sir. God has spoken to me and he confirmed that he bowl lathers. No mirrors to see what he’s doing so he uses a bowl to be sure the lather is perfect consistency. Really. I swear to God.

    A slightly shorter/shallower bowl, also palm sized, better ribbed along the bottom than the black one. This too should work fine for creams.

    Don’t believe I would spend more than 10 dollers on any bowl. I came up with a free plastic bowl about 5X2 I put glue dots in the bottom . Works extremely good.

    I am a full time face lathering fool now, but I did start out with a red neck scuttle, AKA self-watering violet pot.

    When I broke by red neck scuttle, I bought a scuttle from Robert A Becker, AKA Feats Of Clay Scuttle. Is he still in business???

    But! Face lathering is all I do now.

    Misunderstood? Surely you jest. And of course you know that GAWD has a beard. A really long one. White.

    Mind you, if God is female and if God is infinite, can you imagine how long a razor She'd need to shave Her legs?

    Careful with that suribachi bowl. Too much pressure and you’ll rip your brush hairs off.
