MUST HAVE: Fruit Bowls By Virginia Sin
Spending so much time at home in the last 18 months has meant that we are much more conscious of how important an aesthetically pleasing home is to us. Great beauty is to be celebrated, especially in the everyday. It’s no secret that spending, particularly on furnishing and homewares, have boomed in the last year. It seems everyone agrees that time spent at home should be in surroundings that pleases one’s senses.
Here’s where the quirky, delightful Prong Fruit Bowl by multi-disciplinary artist Virginia Sin comes in. Sin’s eponymous line of handmade home goods have been featured in the likes of Architectural Digest, New York Times and three Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park. It’s not too far-reaching to say that her collection of homewares are practical objets d’art - art pieces with a purpose.
If you like your home accessories with a touch of humour, the Prong Fruit Bowl might just be the perfect addition to your kitchen. Sin playful redefines ceramics with her handmade coiled creations. The bowl is made with large enough gaps to hold most fruit and has been considerately designed to facilitate the breathing of fruit, giving them enough time to ripen. It’s a matter of the perfect fruit ergonomics.
The bowl, when filled, adds a colourful, punchy dash of the tropics no matter the time of year or season. Not a fruit person? If you layer the bottom with a tea towel, the bowl also doubles up nicely as a bread basket, perfect for croissants, brioche buns or a sourdough loaf. The Prong Fruit Bowl comes in three sizes and every bowl is 100% unique, just like the homes they are meant to live in.
