Ahmad Sardar-Afkhami & Andrew Galuppi
Ahmad Sardar and Andrew Galuppi travel a lot. From Timbuktu to Samarkand, or wherever their clients send them, they monopolize overhead bins with carry-ons full of market finds from the across the mosquito-filled globe. Their philosophy is a contemporary take on luxury in which the handmade and the artisanal play a pivotal role.
Elegant in its simplicity, this large bowl by
Delavan Designs is a stunning example of American midcentury design and craftsmanship. Made from turned walnut burl, the bowl exhibits wonderful grain.
A freeform bowl created following the natural contours
of one large piece of wood, finished in natural color. A semi-gloss finish highlights the grain, knots and burl of the wood. No maker's mark. Bowl, 8" deep.
