The bowls are an exploration into the different qualities of wood. The whole bowl is turned out of a single piece of ash, and we wanted to see how thin we could make the wood, and how it would contrast with the solid base. The bowls were designed for Norwegian Prototypes 2010, where the brief was to design something that could be carried onto an airplane. Besides the dimensions we were completely free to do whatever we felt like. It was a great opportunity for us to work formally also on a theme we have been exploring for a while, the meeting of different shapes, and how different shapes are perceived when carved out of a single block of matter.
