I saw on a thread that someone mentioned using a suribachi bowl as a lather-bowl. I did not even know what a suribachi bowl was until I looked it up. It has ridges and grooves in it that would be helpful in making lather. This might be worth a try. Amazon has them for about $10.   Anyone else ever use one to make lather? Here's what they look like.

Aren’t they rough, and texturized ceramic inside? I can’t imagine that being any good for your brush(es). No thanks!!!

I found the Captain's Choice bowl, which is very popular, had very sharp grooves in it. I even filed mine down a bit.  It is much worst than this bowl.

Short answer:  yes. It worked very well.

(I think the latter is more attractive than the standard (Japanese) corner grocery store suribatci shown in your post.)

There is one caveat that may affect the utility of most suribatci when used for lathering:  the base usually will be relatively narrow, so, if you bowl lather, you must hold it tightly while lathering, or it will tip over.  There are fixes for that issue with various levels of elaboration.

I got mine in yesterday and used it for bowl-lathering. It worked great. No problems holding on to it. This does work well and as you said, this one is attractive.

Yeah, it looks like they are part of a set.
