Substantial serving and storage pieces add visual impact to the table and countertop. Thick, sand-cast aluminum forms are finished with a heavy, ash black textured coating, giving the exterior a lava-like appearance. Watertight bowls in two sizes can act as partyware or everyday pieces, while flared bowls with oversize walnut-stained acacia wood lids become canisters for multiple storage uses. A simple tall vase adds sculptural beauty to the room, even when standing empty. Taper holders that fit standard (7/8” diameter) candles and trivets doubling as coasters are backed with felt to prevent surface scratches.
