New Green Bowl

Actually, most of my bowls are green and this new one is not very green at all.

I have long been a Clementina van der Walt fan. Remember her wonderful teapots painted with ethnic patterns and wild dogs?  I never actually bought one, despite much longing.  I also remember, many, many years ago eating interesting food off her vibrant plates at the Africa Cafe in Cape Town. Usually, when I come across some of her work, I can’t resist.  As was the case in in Durbs earlier this month.

The New Green Bowl is just perfect for my way of eating.

I have enjoyed just picked, steamed Cavalo Nero and Puy lentils in it…

my entire havest of sweet potatoes (pathetic I know, but uttterly delicious) with homemade aioli…

mixed lettuce for lunch…

fresh pasta with fresh herbs and fresh tomatoes…

As the season starts to change, I can just imagine the delights in store for my new bowl.


One thought on “New Green Bowl

  1. Love your gorgeous green and red bowl. Perfectly appropriate for your cuisine. It reminds me of William Morris’ quote, ” have nothing in yr home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful” … And your new Clemntina bowl is both!
