Rope Bowls

Doug Johnston

The loveliest of vessels for any of your small treasures.  Each rope bowl is lovingly handmade and hand-formed one at a time in Doug Johnston's studio in Brooklyn, NY.  Made from sewing thread and braided 100% cotton cord, stitched on vintage industrial zig-zag sewing machines. The technique is itself based on the ancient method of making ceramic coiled pots as well as coiled basketry.

Small measures 3.5" tall x 7" diameter

Large measures 6.5" tall x 8" diameter

Because each piece is handcrafted, the actual item you receive will have its own unique marks, stitching, shape and details that might vary slightly from the photos shown. The rope used is raw cotton, as a result the products will soften with use though they will still hold their shape.
