"Bringing play to your table, these round-bottomed bowls rock and spin with a touch, but won’t tip over, just like children's toys..."
"The movement of the bowls evoke both fear and delight in the tension between potential disaster and surprising joy with the question of whether they will contain their contents or create a spill. Every bowl has the same round bottom that keeps it upright, but each has a unique hand-shaped rim and nest for storage. Produced in fun colors, including bright orange, yellow, and white. Slip-cast ceramic. "
