these bowls are handmade in providence, RI and are wonderful for fruit, wrapped candies, little packets of pistachios (my choice), rice crackers (ditto) -- and their texture and shape means people come right up to them to touch them & look at them.
HOT HOT HOT. These sculpted cork bowls are a beautiful example of what I like to call Organic Minimal, exemplified by all the wooden housewares I'm drooling over these days - sleek, simple, and seriously pretty. Bonus: they're made from reclaimed waste cork and non-toxic epoxy adhesive - and the big one can be used as a bike helmet (in a pinch). ($118 at Branch)
