The Moss Scuttle was designed by Dr. Chris Moss and brought to life by Sara Bonneyman, an artisan in Nova Scotia, Canada. The simple but effective design features a small bowl resting atop a small pitcher. There are many new potters producing different versions of scuttles, but this one still holds tried and true.
By filling the pitcher with hot water, the heat warms the pottery. I also fill the smaller bowl to further temper the scuttle. When I'm ready to use it, I pour out the water from both bowls. In the larger bowl, I add fresh hot water and I fill the smaller bowl with my newly created lather. This version of scuttle was not intended for lather to be made in it, but it holds and heats the lather and brush while I'm shaving.
The Moss Scuttle is available in two sizes: small and large. It comes in a variety of colors and has complementary mixing bowls. Each one is handmade by Sara Bonneyman to be very a durable and beautiful accessory.
