East Fork Breakfast Bowl and Ice Cream Bowl

Breakfast Bowl

  • 1.25 cups
  • 5.5" x 1.75"
  • A wide, low-slung profile
  • A trimmed, ringed foot

Ice Cream Bowl

  • 1.5 cups
  • 5" x 2"
  • A rounded shape with higher walls
  • A more tucked-under, flat bottom

Wild news, y’all.  You can eat Breakfast in the Ice Cream Bowl and Ice Cream in the Breakfast Bowl.  Still, while both of these small bowls serve the functions of bowl they’re different at every angle and I tend to grab them for slightly different purposes.  The Breakfast Bowl is my go-to for little kids and pets when they’re eating at the table (or on the floor)Its wide base makes it hard to knock over.  But when they’re cruising around the house eating snacks, or (don't @ me) snacking on the couch with their eyes glued to a screen, the Ice Cream bowl is easier to hold and is less slosh-prone.  

I’m using kids to paint a picture here, but you can apply the same highly-advanced spatial logic to adult bowl use, too.

Candle-Lit Breakfast
East Fork Bitty Bowls with Rice Wax Candles

Alex walked into our bedroom a few nights ago to find Lucia, our two-year-old, blowing out a match she’d found in the nightstand and figured out how to strike. Clever girl! I took it as a cue to really double down on flame safety, by introducing a new morning routine.  While Alex and Vita are still snoozing, Lui and I sneak downstairs for breakfast number 1 of many. These days, it’s pitch black darkness still at 6 am. She lights a candle and as it burns she eats in silence.

We use these little Japanese rice bran wax candles because they burn just about as long as it takes her to eat breakfast. Now to pitch you on why I think you'll like these candles as much as we do.    

Daiyo has been making candles in the Shiga Prefecture of Japan since 1914. For over 100 years they have used locally sourced rice bran wax, which is a byproduct of making rice bran oil. It is an environmentally sustainable, gentler alternative to much more common petroleum-based candles. “The flame emanates an emotion not possible with electrical lights in our daily lives,” they say. “We contemplate the innate powers of the light of a candle flame, and how human relations are derived and created from it. We will continue making candles of the highest quality in order to pass down the closely-knit relationship between flame and humans that we have weaved since generations ago.”

East Fork Night Swim is retiring
We know a lot of you are still waiting on pots in Night Swim to get restocked. The team is going to be glazing pretty much every pot in emerald green for the next several weeks until we have a nice, big stockpile of Night Swim to shout about. We'll let you know when it's going to hit the shelves. And know that if you do miss out, there's always something new and fun around the corner.
