To create this ten-piece collection of bowls, the space between an outer bowl shape and the volume of a fruit or vegetable is filled with casting resin, reproducing the surface of the specimens in detail. These impressions are reproduced as food-safe and waterproof resin objects. The bowls were originally handmade in a semi-industrial process, but are now mass-produced by PCM.
