Known as a spouting bowl or resonance bowl, this brass water bowl with handles has a flared shape designed to magnify vibrations moving through its water contents. By rubbing a flat palm back and forth across the handles, the user sends vibrations through the basin and in turn through the water, causing the surface to ripple, spout, and dance about. The brass bowl is cast in low relief with motifs relating to water, including cloud-form scrollwork, crashing waves, and four sinuous dragons blowing fountains of water up the sides. Textured by a light patina of verdigris oxidation, we love this charming bowl as a catch-all, planter, or decorative centerpiece.

These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
