These innovative metal bowls were developed by a Japanese company that has been around for hundreds of years. These incredible creations come from Nousaku’s KAGO line of flexible containers, which were designed by artist Rina Ono.

Before they are transformed into tin bowls, the sculptures begin as flat sheets of metal, made up of various intricate designs. These range from spiderweb-like formations to rectangular geometric shapes. Since the small metal sheets can be transformed to conform around any object, this makes them perfect for storing fruit or even holding plants.

Since these objects are made from tin, they are naturally flexible and do not rust or tarnish as easily as silver. These interesting pieces show that just like its artful tin sculptures, the age-old company continues to reshape itself and evolve. Stats for Malleable Metal Bowls Trending: Older & Mild
