Molten Sculptural Bowl

A sculptural bowl of flowing, hand blown glass is draped over the gnarled root of a gamal tree.


Take Root

This stunning, art glass vase seems to bridge different worlds: natural and manmade; earthy and refined; practical and otherworldly.

The base is the gnarled root of a gamal tree. Quick growing but relatively short-lived, gamal trees are used by farmers in Indonesia as live fencing. New saplings grow in to replace the older growth, and local artisans have discovered ways to use the intricate beauty of their roots.

Here, those roots are draped with a hand blown glass vessel, which takes on a unique, organic form as it cradles into the nooks and ridges of its new base. On its own, the piece is a striking, sculptural accent for any room, but it can be put to use as well. It provides an eye-catching setting for cut flowers or a one-of-a-kind wine decanter. Because of the nature of the materials, no two will ever be the same. Handmade in Indonesia.

Very unique gift


We look forward to enjoying for a long time.



Unique and beautiful


How often do you find something that you've never seen before and had no idea even existed until you stumble across it? That's how I feel about this bowl. It's truly one of a kind and amazing- and I'm not the kind of person to shout superlatives from the rooftop! My husband is going to love this.



Beautiful and Unique


This is the perfect gift for someone who loves nature inspired items. The true test will be what my son and daughter-in-law think about it on Christmas. But I think they will love it. At first, I was hoping for a different style but since everyone is different you don't know exactly what you're getting. The more I look at it the more I love it. It's really tempting to keep it for myself.

A Real Piece of Art


I am always on the lookout for artsy and affordable gifts for family members. I do not want to gift items that will eventually end up in the back of a closet. This vase is beautiful and the perfect size. If it were larger it would distract from the beauty and probably look like a stump from your backyard. I am very pleased with every item I have purchased from UncommonGoods. What more can I say? Except yay!

Perfect statement piece for my small entry. I love it!

Beautiful, unique gift


Beautiful piece, I'm looking forward to giving it as a gift. In order to mold to the shape of the wood, the glass is thick which may be unexpected. There was a small chip in the rim of my bowl when it arrived.



Neat but...


I wanted to put a Betta in it but it's way too small for anything but very short stem flowers. Mine is tall rather than wide (about half the width and twice as tall as the picture shown) making it too precarious for a vase. Also, some of the wood that supports the bowl was broken off when I opened the box. Neat concept but too small for the price. Some idea of the dimensions, even though they vary, would be helpful. Probably wouldn't have bought it if I'd known how small it would be.

This was a 5 year wedding anniversary gift and they loved it. No issues or complaints from them. They didn't mention any of the "flaws" that other reviewers have mentioned.
