Perfect imperfection: Moon Bowls by Belgian designer Ilona van den Bergh are slip cast as perfect half-spheres and reshaped while still in a malleable state to create one-off pieces. Each bowl is hand shaped after being removed from their molds, and are then fired to fix their slightly warped shape. The containers are coloured with “engobes” – liquefied suspensions of clay particles in water – giving them a a matte pastel finish. Available in three sizes, with diameters of 10, 15 and 25 centimetres, the bowls are available to purchase individually.
