The custom is to keep the wedding ring safe until it finds it's place around the finger of bride and groom where it will remain until the end of days. Some keep it in a box, some strap it on a pillow and others put it in a bowl where it nests until it's big moment has come. As it is the traditional symbol of love, LaNiqueHOME thought the ring should not hide in a box or sink into a pillow. So here's their inside-out ring bearer bowl, with a beautiful French floral design, on which the ring can sit proud! This beauty is about 3" in diameter and 4-5mm thick. Unglazed with a matte finish.

This limited edition serving bowl was created by artist Bryce Wymer and designer Farrah Sit. Hands have the arresting ability to create and engage a narrative about the human condition. Strength, weakness, embracement and frailty can all come across within just a few variations of the hands positioning. In the original "Grasp Collection" concept phase, Bryce and Farrah were interested in engaging the viewer in an interactive experience. After throwing a few ideas around they decided that hands would be the most universal storytelling element. Flat Earth Studio wanted to keep the concept slightly abstracted so the viewer could extract their own personal story from the design. This porcelain bowl is kiln fired and hand painted by Bryce Wymer. 2.75" high x 5.25" wide.
