The Dino bowls are reminiscent of oversized eggshells. Each steel bowl is individually hand-hammered to create an artistic surface texture like that of an ostrich egg, then hand polished to a high shine. The jagged edge is also worked by hand. This entails a lot of meticulous handcrafting work, as the artist must polish each and every indentation along the entire rim. Only then can the piece be sent on for nickel plating. Dino is not only decorative, but can also be used for fruit, nuts or biscuits. However, please note that nickel-plated products are not suitable for holding salads and other acidic or moist foods.
