Inspired by primordial geology and relics of cultures at the origins of civilization, the essence of these bowls is a textural, archeological elegance imbued with contemporary minimalism. The crater bowls recall both the rich materiality of a moon's surface as well as the illusion of its weightlessness suspension in space. The pale matte sheen is achieved with intricitate subtle hammer detailing on sterling silver, which requires exceptional technical skill.
