Maarten De Ceulaer Balloon Bowls


Balloon Bowls, by Belgian designer Maarten de Ceulaer, is a series of vessels created by filling inflated balloons with coloured plaster.

In a similar process to that used in ceramic practice, the balloons act as flexible moulds for the plaster. Finished with a waterproof coating, the bowls are unique in shape, with varied, uncontrollable colour patterns.

See the process of making Balloon Bowls below.
