New Use for a Broken Bowl

Pin it button big

At one of the designboom booths we spotted this broken pitcher turned parsley holder. We thought it was on purpose, that they pitcher was actually supposed to be that shape, but when we asked the told us that they had broken it earlier in the day and were just trying to make the best of it.

We kind of loved the idea, not just for parsley but for planting a little garden that can twist in and out of the broken spaces. It also means that we don't automatically have to throw away a broken bowl or teacup or pitcher. It helps that it's all one color so that it looks sculptural and 'on purpose'. What do you think? Would you try this out? Maybe put a tealight inside?
