Super Bowl

Handcrafted by Colombian artisans, this multi-purpose bowl is made of reclaimed glass from old vehicle windows. With a lovely green tint (due to the dye added to the original windows that helped lessen the sun's glare), this large bowl can be used as a decorative object, a vase for fresh flowers, a punch bowl or a goldfish bowl.

This item has been discontinued. When it sells out, it will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Comments about RECYCLED WINDSHIELD MULTI-PURPOSE BOWL:

    I love the fact that this is made from a recycled windshield. I will have to buy really really tall flowers to use it as a vase but I can also be creative and put all sorts of things in it.

    Comments about RECYCLED WINDSHIELD MULTI-PURPOSE BOWL:

    Love that it's recycled and the glass color is lovely. However, it does not appear as large in the picture as it really is. The one I received is slightly larger than what is specified. Not sure where I can put it in my small house.

      Bought as christmas gift for sister and brother in law -- they like unusual items. She loved it for her kitchen (multiple uses), and recycling a windshield appealed to him. Now husband wants one for us too! Much bigger than we'd imagined, great for holding wine corks.

        I actually bought this as a gift for my friend's wedding with the matching pilsner glasses. My friends are LA Hippy Chic and very into the planet. I decided to go against their registry and buy them something no one else would think about. The best part about these items, they were recylced and made into useable conversational pieces. Everything is better with a story! It was the perfect gift and they were thrilled! Knowing I purchased a gift that delighted the recipient, I passed on some earth friendly products, not to mention it serves many functions, and hope my friends continue the trend.

            This bowl was beautiful, but it was larger than it appeared to be in its picture online. If the friend I'd bought it for had a large open hallway to put it in, she would have kept it, but in her compact apartment, it just doesn't fit.
