Modern Boat Launch


Annnieglass is launching a modern maritime look with its new line of boat-shaped bowls.  Called Ultramarine Long Boats, the gently abstracted canoes are serving pieces handmade of luminous aqua glass, and they float an aesthetic that's vibrant, artistic, and multi-functional.

“I like the idea that they are long and narrow.” says their designer Ann Morhauser, “As centerpieces, they aren’t too big for the table."

To give her serving pieces the limelight as centerpieces, Morhauser exaggerates the marine motif by filling them with water and live goldfish, or floating candles or flower blossoms. Minimalists might let the pop of color speak for itself and leave the bowls empty, but they'd also look great filled with sea shells, ornaments, fresh fruits or veggies.

$122 for 19" long
$163 for 27" long
Ultramarine serving bowl (foreground), 15", complements the boats, $69.
