"Single" Vegetable Parchment Bowls by Margaret Dorfman
These vessels are built slice by slice, hand shaped into translucent bowls, and glazed with a sturdy non-toxic finish, the final form taking on the organic curves of blown glass.
Like their fresh counterparts, varieties shift somewhat by season, though most are available year round.
Bowls measure 4-8 inches in diameter, flare to a width of about 7-10 inches and stand approximately 4-7 inches high.
The bowls can hold potpourri or small lightweight treasures. A votive candle in a glass cup illuminates them beautifully. More simply, the bowls can be enjoyed for the quiet invitation they extend: to slow down, look closely, and rediscover the complex beauty of the natural wonders we so often take for granted.
