As one of our Valentine’s Day gift suggestions, we featured a beautiful hanging planter by Anke Appelgryn of live.love.design. So when we came across these nifty Asian noodle bowls, we couldn’t resist calling the dynamic designer up and chatting to her about them. ‘Ceramic artist Martin Swart and I designed the bowl for Asian dishes and sushi as they are such a popular cuisine at the moment,’ she told us. ‘We opted to make the bowl in a heart shape, as it supports and compliments the chopsticks beautifully.’ We love the little hole they included, which you can tuck your chopsticks into, to ensure they don’t roll off your bowl. This beautiful crockery is typical of Anke’s signature design style, with their bold colours and subtle scribblings. The noodle bowls sell for R90 each, and you can contact Anke on 082-462-1857 or email@example.com for stockist details.
