I'm saving my pennies for one of these beautiful organic vessels designed by Brenda Houston.
Crafted naturally of calcite and onyx, they really stand alone as works of art. The minerals are mined in a private quarry, and then the pieces are finished by hand. No two are exactly alike, and sizes range from five to 52 inches.
The smaller versions can be perched atop a coffee table book, and the larger bowls (which are the real showstoppers in my opinion) are right at home in the center of a dining room table - which is exactly where I will put my own (someday)!
