The simple act of finishing a salad, it seems, is an underestimated challenge. Chunks cling stubbornly to the bowl’s surface, defying the spoon’s gentle coaxing.

A quest for a solution led me to a chance encounter with a local sculpture club, where a Wednesday evening workshop became the birthplace of a new kind of bowl. This hand-crafted vessel, featuring a subtle inward lip, effortlessly guides the last remnants of salad onto the spoon, eliminating culinary frustration.

This initial experiment sparked a series of unique bowl prototypes, each a testament to the fusion of form and function, where even the most mundane of tasks is elevated to an artful experience.
