This wonderful Cabbage Leaves Small Bowl will make heads turn as you add something unique to your table. A hand-painted ceramic serving piece, it can set you apart from anyone else in your circle of friends – or family.
This sculptured ceramic creation comes from a relatively new design house that has gone independent after years of experience. In fact, Vaughn has 25 years on both the retail and wholesale side, including V.P. of product development with Fitz & Floyd.
This elegant serving bowl - in an open shape - features detailed cabbage leaves in a hand-painted finish. It's detailed on the outside and bottom as much as it is on the inside of the bowl. It has a great sculptural design that highlights the details of each leaf.
It would be a great featured piece for use throughout the year. It would be a great conversation piece, for sure. And, it matches several other Kaldun & Bogle items we have available.

The company is a partnership of renowned designer Stevens Vaughn and his business partner Rodney Cone. After years of working for others in the home decor industry, they set out on their own - with Vaughn handling the sculpting that starts each piece.
Kaldun & Bogle's design direction comes from when Vaughn worked in Italy. "I was very impressed that Italians are more concerned with the spirit in which a product is created. They sculpt with the knowledge of where the final product will be used and the prominence it will play in people's lives. They paint the ceramics fast and with passion. They like to say their technique is easy on the eyes and the more you look at it, the more you love it," Vaughn said in a feature article in Tableware Today.
Vaughn sculpts most of the pieces by hand, initially. And, he's been working with rural communities in China, lecturing on sculpting. In 2007, he and Cone spent time in Sikkim, a Buddhist country high in the Himalayas, where their "spirits were fed," sharing their product development experiences. They were even invited to Iceland for a medieval late summer feast.
"We recognize that people need to be fed spiritually as much as they need to be physically nourished," he said. "And, when we set the table we take time to feel love for the people we're serving. It's a ritual that must be honored. I like inspiring people, of creating transformational moments. That's why I create these products, to bring joy to people. I was once asked if I could only do one thing for the rest of my life - what would it be. I'd throw dinner parties!" Vaughn said. "The dining room table is where it all happens and aren't we lucky to make the products that do on that dining room table."
