Default Custom Hookah Bowl?

So, I'm looking into maybe getting a custom-made hookah bowl. I found a guy out at the renfair that does handmade, hand-glazed pottery. The stuff he makes is dishwasher and microwave safe, fired to nearly 2400(doesn't specify the exact temp) degrees farenheit. Would this be a high enough temperature to make something to smoke out of?

2400 degrees fahrenheit is ~1588 kelvin.
I heard coals can go to 275-300 C max, which is about 575 kelvin max, which is around 850-900 degrees fahrenheit.

So if his bowls can stand 2400 degrees fahrenheid I assume they can stand coals too

Just make sure that he uses a completely food safe glaze.

A lot of his products are designed for eating/drinking, coffee cups, shot glasses(and double shot glasses, which are super cool), goblets, that sort of thing, so I'm assuming it is, I'll make sure to double check, though. Thanks for the heads up, didn't think to ask that.

Make sure to post pictures when it's finished. Are you going with a traditional style or a phunnel/vortex style?

Probably going to go with a phunnel/vortex style if possible, and I'm still trying to decide how I want it glazed. Leaning towards peacock colors(purple, blue, and green) but that's probably because, right at the moment, everything seems to be getting done in those colors(getting married in 2.5 months and those are our unofficial colors). But it would go well with the blue base on my hookah.

I was going to post a link to my hookah, but I can't find it on the SS site. It's the medium social smoke pumpkin, with a blue base, and a stainless stem with a blue glass piece in the middle.
