The salvaged teak Burly Bowl in Jumbo is a statement piece. Empty, this wide-open vessel inspires collaboration, strength, and open-mindedness among partners as it crowns the center of the firm's conference room table. Ambition, high stakes, and brilliant colleagues -bright and bold- all striving for a shared reality and hoping it will become well-aged and weighty, just like this lovely teak. A nod to both the mission of this team and it's value of stewardship. Or it might be displayed on a high kitchen shelf, among gingham and highlighted by a small floodlight, as someone's secret homage to their grandmother's mother's well-used dough bowl, how she emigrated with a very large bowl as one of her few possessions. Her resilience, her loving embrace no-matter-what, her ability to make something from nothing - all still inspiring today. Whether worldly or homey, an empty container is not nothing. If it's big enough, it can hold all we need it to.
Approximately 20" in diameter.
