The bowl was possibly the first utensil made by early humans. The bowl could hold water for drinking and food for eating. It might also be said that bowls were possibly the first containers to hold flowers.
Through the ages, bowls have become elaborate and fancy. Flower and centerpiece bowls have become as interesting as the flowers they are designed to hold.
The metal framed Miramar of California planter bowl is an artifact of the 1950s. The chartreuse glaze is enhanced with the addition of bright red blooms.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes author/aviator Anne Morrow Lindbergh. “Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day–like writing a poem or saying a prayer.”
