Decorative Bowls Showcase Specialty Woods

So"The Mountain" by Daeng Thanunchai me of today's most sought-after decorative bowls are fashioned by hand from wood like bamboo, albesia and mango. Many wooden bowls arecarved, then decorated with paint, batik or lacquering techniques. Artisans turn humble woods and other materials into true works of art.

The lacquered bamboo centerpiece called "The Mountain" by Daeng Thanunchai for Novica is made of coiled bamboo basketry carved into its desired shape. Exotic materials like a lacquer from the Gluta usitata tree mixed with ashes of burnt rice paddy husks are laboriously applied layer upon layer by hand.

These one of a kind decorative bowls can be stunning in display shelves or on tabletops. They are often filled with other decorative objects, but truly stand beautifully on their own.

Many of these vessels are food for use with food. However, some like "The Mountain" are for decorative purposes only. Actually, having only one purpose is quite enough when an object can bring artistic beauty and design into a living space.

Deruta Decorative Bowl Collection

Deruta Collection Ceramic Bowl

Pottery may have roots in the most ancient rudimentary cultures, but in some places in the world, over centuries and through generations, it has been elevated to a true art form. Deruta, a little village nestled into an Italian hillside, is known for its master craftspeople who create Renaissance patterned colorfully hued decorative bowls.

Each of the ceramic bowls that make its way out of the village via  Arte D’Italia Imports, are unique and none two are alike. The Deruta Collection features its crowning jewel, the Raffaellesco Shallow bowl. The artwork on these decorative pieces dates back countless generations with many craftspeople handing down the trade from generation to generation.

The Shallow bowl is food and dishwasher safe, but also perfect as a decorative item in the kitchen or dining room.

Friday Finds: Andy Garcia Havana Home Redux

Earlier in the week, we featured "The Men of Hollywood" in stylish interiors which included the Havana-inspired home of the very dashing Cuban-American actor Andy Garcia. Susi was inspired by a photo of Mr. Garcia in his living room (who wouldn’t be?), so she recreated the 20s and 30s style Key Biscayne living room from StylePath finds. I think she nailed it, all of her picks would create a rich and warm living room you'd want to curl up and spend hours in.

Bowl Me Over

Forty year-old, Czech-born Pavel Hanousek has a thing for hot stuff—hot molten glass that is. When he gets in the mood to play with fire and sand the result is an eclectic array of original art glass like the Twin Time Bowl below. This hand-blown decorative glass bowl is a swirl of color in amber, purple and red.

His art glass studio, Fusion Z, located in Healdsburg, California, fuses American and European design with the European glass-blowing techniques of master craftsmen. Chip Scarborough, Tony Evans, Jiri Pacinek and Igor Muller join Hanousek to make up the Fusion Z family.

The rest of the collection includes vases, bowls, perfume bottles, sculptures and other random, but beautiful, glass objects. All pieces are signed by their respective designers, numbered and available in limited editions only. So get’ em while you can.

The Europeans must have a corner on the glass-blowing bowl market. Nuvo Designs brings you this lovely Murano glass bowl which is created and signed by a European glass artist. No bowl or glass vase is the same and have unique form and color combinations.

Random Fact: Glassblowing is a technique used to inflate molten glass into a bubble aided by blowpipe or blow tube. This technique was discovered by the Phoenicians around 50 BC. The earliest artifacts of glassblowing were found in Jerusalem and date from as early as 4 BC. Now that’s old!
