Round Board

we had a visit earlier this week from a lovely couple who
is purchasing two custom, round cutting boards as gifts for
very dear friends of theirs. they chose the round board
in part because it is a Chinese tradition to give a circular gift to
a newly married couple (as a wedding gift or anniversary gift).

this circle represents completion, whole, unity,
harmony, the Sun, the Moon...among many other things.

it is also traditional to sit around a circular table for meals because
there is no head or no ends of the table. everyone can see each other &
speak to each other equally. most importantly, reach for the dishes of food
in the center of the circle w. equal opportunity.

making these connections & developing relationships w. our clients & customers
is very important to us. it is always very inspiring...

Open Bowl

"There’s something poetic about an open bowl.
You’re drawn to the shape and quickly understand
its potential on a very deep level." - Joshua Vogel
