these stacked earthenware containers by Vincent Van Duysen make a serene and sober abstract object for display in any room, but are designed to contain and conceal. The series ceramic bowls with sandblasted wood lids consists of three different heights to be matched with three different thicknesses of wood lids in a selection of colors. For the tall narrow container, try flour, sugar, rice, pasta or utensils in the kitchen; pens, pencils, post-its and clips in the home office; or lighters, napkins, a note pad and pen on the coffee table. Serve in the wider bowls and use their lids as a trivet. Although beautiful alone, Van Duysen's collection of ceramic containers was conceived as an entity that evokes the shelves of stacked vessels in a potter's studio. The differences of scale and color create powerful rhythms and modulations expressed in the subtle but intense palette of a northern European sky. Made in Belgium.
