The Standing Bowl first launched in 2013, and it remains one of our studio’s favorite designs today. Originally produced by sand casting aluminum, we invested in a more high tech die casting process in 2017, which produces incredibly smooth and precise castings. Seeing these raw castings in the buff made us want to share them with the world in all their nude glory. The raw bowl casting is bead blast utilizing fine glass beads at high pressure to leave a smooth, velvet-like surface on each bowl. The aluminum is intentionally left unfinished so that its coloring will enrich and patina with its environment.
