This copper-coated Nambé Alloy with clear protective coating make this bowl a feast for the eyes. It was designed by Lisa Smith who was inspired by her travels to the Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon and others. Those canyons are carved from water and wind. This bowl reflects the coppery sand and the desert flora, The manufacturer notes: "Due to subtly varying verdigris (green patina), each piece is unique, a sculpture of contrasting color and texture. Measuring 4.5 inches in diameter and standing 2.5 inches high (13-inch, 10-inch and 7-inch diameter versions also available), this round bowl exemplifies the collection's drama. Designer Lisa Smith scallops the rim in a symmetrical pattern, and emphasizes the scallops' rhythm with ridged, wave-like verdigris sloping down to the bowl's flat bottom. A smooth band at the top glows with copper's pure warmth. Copper Canyon pieces are made of our signature Nambé Alloy coated with copper for heirloom-quality durability. A clear protective coating makes upkeep as simple as wiping with a damp or soapy cloth and reduces the need for polishing." This gift is perfect for the bride and groom who enjoy the out of doors and hiking. It's reflection of the beauty of nature makes it a wonderful gift to give to a couple on their special day.
