Handcrafted and antique bowls are having a moment. According to Red magazine in the UK, bowls are set to be one of the most popular homeware trends in 2023. Did you know a quarter of us Brits now eat most of our meals from bowls?
Now i'm not suggesting we all ditch the plates for our Sunday roast, but there is something so beautitful and tactile about a unique, hand crafted bowl.
For me, it's the organic shape inherent in bowls. With no angular edges, bowls are beautifully fluid and add shape and texture to any shelf.
They look great when stacked up together, especially if like me, you have a collection of vintage bowls, all with different patterns, textures and rims, which make for a pleasingly rustic stack in the kitchen!
Bowls are also a cost-effective way to start a vintage homewares collection, or add some flair to your interiors. Buy one gorgeous statement bowl and that can set off any corner of your home.
Vintage and antique bowls also make wonderfully useful storage - proving the adage that you should have nothing in your home that is not beautiful and / or practical. I use my vintage handcrafted bowl collection for storing keys, loose change and even for scented pot pourri, which is also making a comeback!
My favourites, in keeping with my own interior aesthetic, are rustic, handcrafted and sometimes handpainted bowls, often with flaws or signs of age, that make them more tactile and give your home texture and shape. Terracotta bowls lend a wonderful warm feeling to any room and are versatile in terms of your colour scheme.
