The bowls were redesigned in 2009 with an ovoid shape and colorful interiors. The ceramic is produced from natural red clay extracted from the Andes Mountain range and made to last. Colbo Bowls are produced with near-zero waste, with every scrap of material returned to processing. Use these delightfully colorful, food-safe bowls to serve hors d'oeuvres, snacks, salads, pasta, desserts…the possibilities are endless. The bowls can also be displayed on your coffee table, kitchen counter or in a china cabinet as eye-catching objects. Hand wash only. Each bowl in the large set of four measures 2.4h x 6.7"diam and 1.6h x 5"diam. in the small set of six.

Why We Chose This
We chose these bowls as part of our ongoing recognition of women designers—in this case, Argentine architect and industrial ceramist Colette Boccara. Boccara was a pioneer of modernist Latin American design in the mid-20th century. Boccara's Colbo Dinnerware, along with her hand-painted tabletop pieces, are featured in the MoMA exhibition "Crafting Modernity: Design in Latin America, 1940–1980."
Colette Boccara
Colette Boccara

An architect, artist and industrial ceramist, Colette Boccara (1921–2006) was born in Paris and moved to Argentina at age ten. She was one of only six women to graduate from the architecture school of the Universidad de Buenos Aires. In 1957, she founded Colbo Ceramics in the Argentine city of Mendoza, where she created her unique glazed stoneware designs. In the 1970s, Colbo’s product line expanded to include tiles as well as customized silk-screen-printed items.
