You may have thought you’d seen enough polymer bowls. Ireland’s Silvana Bates’ soap dishes pulls us out of bowl overload.
For her jewelry designs, Silvana creates batches of canes in her favorite palettes that lean toward faded colors and homey patterns.
By joining the tail ends of canes and shaping random bits into bowls, she accentuates their charm in a way that hints of soft old quilts in cozy cottages. She made these to hold her daughter’s collection of soaps.
Can you salvage bits of your favorite pieces and create a signature bowl?
