These small bowls evolved in design over years until we found a form that we loved just so. I was holding one a few weeks ago, feeling its weight and shape and presence cradled in my hands. I became aware of the ebb and flow inside of me in my day-to-day experience, from moments of great struggle to expansive, clarity and inspiration. I smiled to myself. And then I walked across the driveway to Ruben’s shop. “Can you make chisels in the shape of moon phases?”, I asked.
In honour of the cycle that moves oceans. In honour of the waxing and waning of self and collective evolution. In honour of all sacred objects made by hand with heart.
A small stack of these beauties are heading with me to Vancouver Island for a sacred gathering of women under the New Moon at Roundhouse Farm on October 30th, 2016 (still a few spaces remaining!). The lunar bowl is also now available at our R+R Handmade shop on Etsy. Made by hand and finished with raw beeswax, each bowl is one-of-a-kind. Oh, and we embrace wabi-sabi, the Japanese aesthetic celebrating imperfection:).
Thanks for taking a peak at our process!
