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.

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

        Comments about UncommonGoods Molten Sculptural Bowl:

        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.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Molten Sculptural Bowl:

        I bought this for a friend knowing that she would absolutely love it...and I was not wrong. It was her favorite gift this year by far (according to her). I had hoped she could could put a fish in it, but she was concerned about the cleaning and she really didn't want to ruin it somehow. The product delivered promptly and packaged very carefully. I really have nothing bad to say about the bowl honestly.

        The Molten sculptural bowl is a work of art. We purchased it as a feng shui piece that was going to go in an area of the house guests seldom see. But we like the bowl so much we decided to keep it on our dining table. We are very happy with our purchase.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Molten Sculptural Bowl:

        I completely understand the random nature of this object. Depending on the root chosen for the base, some will be pleased with the item, some may be less so. I like the fact that it is entirely unique, so I have no beef with that. I cannot say the same where it comes to the quality of the glass. It's pitted, and has bubbles, there are even marks where (I assume) tongs were used. It makes it look cheap. I guess at this price point I shouldn't expect Waterford Crystal, but I was expecting something a little less rough hewn.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Molten Sculptural Bowl:

              This was the first item I've bought from Uncommon Goods that has been disappointing -- it arrived and looks very sloppy, glass looks like it is sloughing off to one side, and is bubbled. Glass is much thicker than it appears -- it just looks bad and not artistic. Kind of a rush job in appearance.
