I don’t think I’ve ever seen a set of bowls quite like this! They’re unusual in that all of the bowls are hand-blown, evident by the fact that the bowls are all slightly different sizes. There’s also a certain naivety or roughness to the glass that contradicts the sleekness of the design – bar the detail on the foot of the larger bowl, the set has quite a contemporary feel to it.

I’m sure they won’t be to everyone’s taste, but personally I think that this is an uber stylish (and super exciting) set of bowls!

NB: The glass is quite a bit darker than it appears in the photos – almost a dark olivey-brown colour.

Dimensions: Large bowl – 25.5cm in diameter x 9cm tall; Small bowls –  12cm in diameter x 5cm tall;

Price: R320 for the set
