I don't have any counter space in my bathroom. I have a Georgetown G12 but it takes most of the available space I have. I wanted something a little smaller so I asked my wife for a lather mug/bowl for my birthday last week. She went on etsy and found this:

I think it is just about right for what I want to do which is soak my brush and give it somewhere to rest between passes. It is light and has a smaller footprint.

Very nice! Is it purpose-built as a lathering bowl, or did the maker have some other use in mind?

Well, can't believe I posted a picture and didn't give props to the artist that made it! Sarah Welch is from Colorado and does great work. She has several shaving scuttles and lather bowls available in her shop, along with some other pretty neat stuff.

The bowl has a few lines in the bottom with a little swirl and it does a great job of helping whip up the lather. I've bowl lathered with it a couple of times, even though I primarily am a face latherer and it does just fine.

I just got this bowl, it was shipped the 12th. Got caught in the x-mas mail. Very nice size, well made, and the green is nice against the white lather. country dirt is right, nice size to soak brush and to put brush down between passes.

I have Sarah making a custom set - same bowl as Countrydirt's above along with a small brush container for soaking a brush (think of a small brush scuttle minus the reservoir/additional insert). I am having both pieces done in a matte black finish. Its incoming in 4-6 weeks so I will do a post when it arrives.

Wow!  She's got some nice stuff.  I really like her style.  I don't pay much notice to pottery, but her site really got my attention.

Thanks for posting this with a great photo.  I just had a conversation with Sarah and ordered a slightly custom multi-color shaving mug with the oversize handle and added a small cutout to rest the brush on.  Will take 6-8 weeks, but that is no issue.  Looking forward to seeing this nice piece of artwork!

Love the color on this.  Who was the ETSY artist?  
Thanks!
