Collectible Bowls by Bob Stocksdale

Personally, I adhere to the modernist mantra of objects of necessity and usefulness as foundation for the decor of the home. While perusing 1stdibs recently, I came across a stunning collection of useable art, a series of gorgeous handmade bowls by Bob Stocksdale. Signed by the artist, these vessels will only increase in value over time, with enjoyment and care. Perfect to display, offering interest to the space, as well as a wonderful conversation piece, they are worthy of our affection and tending. I love the subtle textural quality resulting from the inherent character of each wood species. Carefully inscribed on the base of each basin for the curious to discover the secret beauty of these wooden treasures. Each bowl a different shape and size, responding I believe, to the nature of the material and the patterning offered. What a gift.

A Modern Table

The holiday season often involves entertaining gatherings of family and friends. A modern table-scape is a great way to create a focal point in your space without the need for decoration for decorations sake. Place these innovative vessels on your holiday table and display your menu in a fresh and interesting way. Gorgeous. The simplicity of these sculptural objects paired with a punch of color found in the fruit, is art for your everyday. They can be used in so many ways for so many different displays. In addition to food, I can imagine flowers, or various collectibles and objects placed within these vessels to create a composition for your centerpiece. I would love this in my entry way to catch the keys and change that find their way into my home. I love these modern, functional, sculptural objects.
