I just discovered Chris Ryan’s work via Twitter and I have to be honest I get very excited when I found local talent with “Real Talent”. Chris Ryan’s work is clean, well thought out, and unique. His work presents complexity in the process but the end result are objects with function that give you that peaceful element of beauty. A visit to his website is a must.
The Feather Bowl is a great example that good design doesn’t need to be expensive. Good design can be affordable and beautiful at the same time. The Feather Bowl retails for $39.95 US – See not all my eye candies are expensive. I am purchasing a couple of bowls as Xmas presents this year.
You can purchase the Feather Bowl at:
Feather bowl is a bentwood accessory, composed of hand finished birch aircraft plywood and a lathe turned bamboo peg. Its form is a result of bending five identical leaves of wood into a basic weave and clipping them in place. The tension of the leaves makes the bowl strong, rigid and feather light. The resulting vessel is ideal for serving appetizers, storing jewelry or as a unique decorative piece.
Feather bowls are shipped flat and assembled by the user. In this way the user becomes part of the form creation. The finish is durable and food safe. –Collecula Studio
