Melbourne-based artist Kate Rohde designed a series of vibrantly colored decorative bowls that are inspired by Rococo decorative arts and the natural movements of nature.

The 'Leafy Bowl' collection includes a number of different colors and shapes, with each mimicking a specific influence. Each product is given its own description, with the 'Blue Green' and 'Rainbow' decorative bowls crafted based on the appearance of an "opening lettuce or cabbage." The bowls are made using a technique of rational casting and a reliance on gravity to create a one-of-a-kind shape. The artist recommends using the bowls to hold flowers or fruit -- also noting that each is coated in a food safe resin.
