Very nice… no, no, it’s better than that!

I love the flow of the tree! Sort of that organic, A&C look to it.

What are the measurements of this piece?

Has this inspired you to start any other similarly designed projects?

UNIQUE and beautiful, for both, but if you give me only one, I will take the second bowl.
Can be as a water carrier as well !!?
