Molten Sculptural Bowl

A sculptural bowl of flowing, hand blown glass is draped over the gnarled root of a gamal tree.

$135.00

Take Root

This stunning, art glass vase seems to bridge different worlds: natural and manmade; earthy and refined; practical and otherworldly.

The base is the gnarled root of a gamal tree. Quick growing but relatively short-lived, gamal trees are used by farmers in Indonesia as live fencing. New saplings grow in to replace the older growth, and local artisans have discovered ways to use the intricate beauty of their roots.

Here, those roots are draped with a hand blown glass vessel, which takes on a unique, organic form as it cradles into the nooks and ridges of its new base. On its own, the piece is a striking, sculptural accent for any room, but it can be put to use as well. It provides an eye-catching setting for cut flowers or a one-of-a-kind wine decanter. Because of the nature of the materials, no two will ever be the same. Handmade in Indonesia.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Molten Sculptural Bowl:

      Beautiful piece, I'm looking forward to giving it as a gift. In order to mold to the shape of the wood, the glass is thick which may be unexpected. There was a small chip in the rim of my bowl when it arrived.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Molten Sculptural Bowl:

        I wanted to put a Betta in it but it's way too small for anything but very short stem flowers. Mine is tall rather than wide (about half the width and twice as tall as the picture shown) making it too precarious for a vase. Also, some of the wood that supports the bowl was broken off when I opened the box. Neat concept but too small for the price. Some idea of the dimensions, even though they vary, would be helpful. Probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd known how small it would be.

              This was a 5 year wedding anniversary gift and they loved it. No issues or complaints from them. They didn't mention any of the "flaws" that other reviewers have mentioned.

                    Perfect size and proportions for me. Glass had bubbles and imperfect which I think add to the charm and rustic-ness(?) of the piece.

                      The bowl is pretty but much smaller than I anticipated. The measurements that were given that the bowl dimensions should fall between we're not accurate. It is about an inch smaller in length, width, and height. The bowl is nice looking but does not serve the purpose nor the location I intended. If you want a small bowl, this would work, but I have seen many in the size I received for a cheaper price.
