This delightful pot was made on the potters wheel. Their Hat was a total accident, as I was throwing a pot on the wheel one became too thin and collapsed on itself. The shape was perfect for a Chef's Toque. This pot is glazed inside so it can be used as a bud vase or for small utensils, how about a few tiny wooden spoons for that chef in your life? This stands 4.5"/11.5cm tall.
Did you know the word Toque is the Arabic word for hat. While this word has existed for thousands of years, referring to any brimless hat, the French popularized “toque” or “toque blanche” as referring to a white chef's hat.
