Designer Gabriel Tan
The undulating Aer Bowl in smoke glass brings sculptural appeal to surfaces—whether filled with treats or placed on a surface as a decorative object. Taking its cues from the spiralling movement of air seen through smoke or mist, the dish is asymmetrical in shape, gently tapering to one side, and rippled in texture. When placed close to natural light—on a window sill or table top—it takes on an ethereal feel, where reflections and refractions of light bring the design and the surface on which it stands to life. Each mouth-blown bowl displays different visual characteristics that reflect its uniqueness.
