13 years ago I got my first dog, a tiny, 8 week old cocker spaniel called Bella. Not long after this I moved house and had a new kitchen put in, and, try as I might, I couldn't find a bowl for Bella that kept her ears clean and looked nice in my kitchen. I was working part time as a potter so decided I'd make Bella a bowl. I put her name on it and painted it in colours that went with my decor. The cats got new bowls, too.
Pretty soon, word got out, and friends started asking me to make bowls for their pets, too. And so Chow Bella was born. Bella is an old lady now (and spends her days with me in my studio), and the business has grown into a full time job.
I pride myself on making elegant, rustic bowls for your much loved pets that are unique, personal to you and your dog or cat, and will look beautiful in your home. The bowls are fully glazed and are dishwasher proof unless otherwise stated.
Please feel free to browse the different sections of this site and have a look through the galleries. I have set sizes that I make but I am always willing to tweak these if you have specific needs - because I make every bowl from scratch, it's easy to adjust the measurements.
Chow Bella bowls are much loved by my customers and I hope you will love yours too!
"A really lovely company to deal with. The order was delivered in first class condition and the bowl is gorgeous. For anyone who would like a bespoke bowl for there pet this is the company to use. Thank you so much." - Susan, November 2017
