Objects Of Design #150: Smile Bowls

Smile: you’re eating salad

At first you don’t even notice that this simple earthenware bowl is smiling at you. Or perhaps winking slightly. The decoration is tilted so that nothing will fall out of the bowl and it’s a beautiful piece of simple design. In addition to the large salad bowl there is a set of four smaller ones for either side salads or pudding perhaps. They’re called Smile, Surprise, Flirt and Wink.

Small faces £24.95 each
