These pretty bowls used for our ice cream parfaits are earthenware handmade in Portugal by raawii, a design and passion-driven company based in Copenhagen.
Back in 2017, when raawii was still a brand-new start-up, the ceramics series Strøm became the base of the company. The series sprang from a collaboration with the Danish art museum Brandts, and the colours and shapes were a heartfelt tribute to the Danish modernist painter Vilhelm Lundstrøm.
The distinctive and clear-cut bowls are handmade in Portugal, in carefully designed glaze colours created specially for the faience pieces to complement and challenge the geometric shapes. With their sculptural character and striking colours, the items in the Strøm series bring a vibrant edge to any space they occupy while also blending in as functional everyday objects.
We fell in love with the design, colours and shape, and also found it very functional and more than fitting for our ice cream parfaits. A $100 bowl it might be, but if it elevates your dessert experience and brings a smile to your face, it’s worth the premium!
