Brass Ballerina Bowl

After traveling through parts of India and Rajasthan last year, one of the things that stayed with me was the way the people of Jaipur, and Jodhpur, and Delhi used shallow brass and marble vessels in utilitarian and decorative ways. They arranged objects, floated flowers, and piled spices in them, and it inspired me, in the months that followed, to seek out examples of shallow brass to incorporate into my own life. There was also the hope I'd find something, eventually, to highlight here as well. I hope you like the ballerina bowl as much as I do. -Heidi

The ballerina bowl is solid polished brass, made in Sweden by 400-year-old brass producer, Skultuna. Each bowl has a playful convex base, and can be used in many ways. It's a nice catch-all for things like keys or change, but we use it primarily as a vessel to float flowers. Note: water will encourage tarnishing of the brass - something we don't mind.

Care: Skultuna recommends using a mild detergent and a soft cloth if you'd like to keep your brass fresh and luminous. Avoid using water if you want to keep your brass pristine.
