Other Bowls

About this project

This collection features different bowl interpretations that have arisen out of a number of different projects over a couple of years. The bowl is an archetypal form - one of the first objects to be developed by humans, its form hasn’t changed in thousands of years making it an ideal form through which to explore different interpretations of how we orientate our intangible selves within a tangible world.

Four Bowls
Photographer: Odi Caspi
Fours Bowls explores the bowl form and particularly notions of inside and outside. The bowls are hollow, but appear solid and are patinated a rich, deep brown. One piece – the outline piece – stands apart from the others, appearing to be lit from the inside. The overall piece is formed both by the relationship of the lines and thresholds within each bowl and in the relationship of lines and thresholds between the pieces. The piece is wholly sculptural but draws on the notions of familiarity and comfort that the bowl in its traditional form evokes.

Outline Bowls
Photographer: Alex Brattell
Outline Bowls reduces the form of the bowl to its most basic form - a curve which, whilst remaining simple is immediately recognisable as a bowl form. Each sterling silver outline has an insert in 18ct gold - one in wire and one in sheet - that hints at the holding space associated with the bowl and sits on the threshold that crosses between inside and outside. Fabricated from Sterling Silver and 18ct gold, measuring 300mm across each, 2015

Seven Bowls
Photographer: Odi Caspi
Seven Bowls is a sculpture consisting of bowl forms on bases that can be arranged and rearranged in countless compositions. Fabricated from patinated base metal and sterling silver, the piece references many different types of bowl - from shallow and open to almost fully closed and draws on the bowl as archetypal form. The upward parts articulate the curve of the bowl whilst the rim of the bowl is extracted to become the base on which the bowls sit. Base metal and Sterling Silver, 1m sq, approx, 2015
