Bowls of food or food of bowls?

parchment

I was an odd kid , whilst other children screwed up their noses at vegetables i piled more brussel sprouts onto my plate . My love of produce does not stop at the eating - i love the look of fruits and vegetables which i will often use instead of flower arrangements in my home but these beautiful parchment bowls are really something else.

The pictured delicate bowls are created from slices of fruits and veggies , Designer Margaret Dorfman presses the materials until they are dehydrated, then crafts the one-of-a-kind bowls from overlapping strips of parchment.

Currently out of stock from uncommon goods but i had to post them because they are so beautiful.
