We’ve never seen a ceramic bowl this big (20 inches in diameter) and couldn’t imagine a more perfect dish for large quantities of salad, mashed potatoes, or stuffing. D. Lasser Ceramics produces more than 15 colorful, hand-painted patterns (Planet Green shown here, $185) at a post-and-beam barn in Londonderry, Vermont. Insider’s tip: At the showroom, there are shelves full of second-quality pottery. Here you’ll find pieces with an imperceptible “oops” at discounted prices, typically 40 percent lower than standard retail. 888-824-6183, 802-824-6183. lasserceramics.com
