          Comments about SATELLITE BOWL:

          This gift was really a hit with my girlfriend and her husband - he is an architect and she is in the arts, so I was paranoid about what to get.

          This fits in with their style, so when I saw it here I had to buy it. It's functional AND stylish, not an every day kind of thing you see around stores. No upkeep, a perfect gift for yourself or for someone with a little flair!!

          This product is over priced for what you get. It's also very large. I would not recommend this to anyone else.

            We received this bowl years ago as a wedding gift, and love it so much that we have given it as a wedding gift so that others can enjoy its striking good looks and versatility as we have.

                        Comments about SATELLITE BOWL:

                        I had admired this product for a long time and finally purchased it. I'm glad I did. We keep a supply of fresh fruit on the upper kitchen counter. It not only showcases the fruit, it ties the room together. I like that the airflow through the bowl means our fruit is less likely to spoil quickly! It seems this design would be well suited to a variety of materials (in addition to wood). I would go crazy over one of these bowls in titanium (though it would be crazy expensive).
