Immediately, you can rule out some things that you cannot do with the Aurelie Bowl. These certainly include holding food that isn't hard and dry and supporting cut flowers. What you can do with it, however, might be far more interesting. It won't scratch, it warps to accommodate and it has a soft and touchable texture that you never get with common crockery.
This is one of many unique pieces designed by Aurelie Tu that employs textiles rather than clay to form vessels. This Aurelie Bowl is made from a felt of 10% polyester and 90% wool that's been woven together by hand in strips in Portland, Oregon. It would be brilliant as a fruit bowl or as a clutter catch-all at the front door.
