In Singapore I have a large collection of small little bowls purchased during my travels. However, the collection began before I moved away from home for good. Here are some of the small little bowls that reside at my parents’ house, which all probably entered the collection before 2003. Sadly, I don’t know where they’re all from. See below for details on these and several others I found during my visit to Atlanta.
Shape. Texture. Color. Beauty.
Small little bowl from Uzbekistan
My husband brought this hand-painted ceramic bowl back for me from a trip he went on with his father.
Small little bowl from Vietnam
This bowl came from a shop called Maroon (156 Hang Bong St).
The price was VND 88,000 (about S$5.50).
They had a lot of other pieces with a similar glaze.
It’s impressive that the shop has custom-printed shopping bags.
On the other hand, nobody really proofread them…
Sea green small little bowl
I love the hemispherical profile and the slightly irregular shape.
Now added to my small little bowl collection are these three, made by my neighbor Janie Bickersteth, whose website I helped set up.
