Default Bowls

What's the difference between the metal and glass and clay vortex bowls? Everyone reviews the "vortex" bowl without specifying which one they are using, though I assume everyone is referring to a clay one.

If the bowls are clay, can't I just make my own? Fire it. Paint it. Glaze it. Viola!?

Thx

Metal - Gets too hot
- unbreakable

Glass - Gets too hot
- Breaks easy

Clay - Perfect amount of heat transfer
- Breaks

As far as making one, a couple members on here have made them, and yes, you could make your own if you fire it and glaze it.

And before I finish this post, I want to say that I dont care if the bowls are ceramic or whatever. I say clay.

Yes, making one would cost more, unless you already had the materials. Or you could actually make profit if you bought some glaize in bulk and some clay then sold them on here or something. The only problems I could see is the lack of consistency between each bowl.
