With his almost 20 lbs squeezed into such a tight footprint Noah’s Ark emits a confident air of compactness, and is emboldened by a certain degree of mystery hovering around perceived issues of stability. Well, let me tell you however that, in regards to balance, this bowl is as stable as can be – thanks to the ample counterbalance that I secured into his base. Wobbly he is most definitely not! And yet – that pitch! That keeeel. I named him Noah’s Ark for once again I found myself grasping for a suitably miraculous title for this piece, and once again yet another Biblical metaphor popped into my mind. But perhaps, this time around at least, the comparison withstands a little scrutiny, as the more I observe her – from various angles, and in all sorts of light – I do find him reminiscent of an Old Testament relic, or artifact of a long-lost Mesopotamian culture. And in case you were wondering about the mysterious white glow, I can tell you that this very white, very upright, slightly uptight, bowl boasts a starboard ‘window’ of glass on its front side: so thin as to be practically transparent.
