We spotted these colorful bowls at the NY Gift Fair. They are created by Tony Wurman of Wunderworks Design based in New York City. Wurman is classically trained as a glass blower but was looking for alternative materials to experiment with. He discovered the polymer EVA or as it is more commonly known, hotmelt glue. EVA is non-toxic and can be recycled. The bowls are created using similar techniques to glass blowing. But the EVA bowls are flexible and won’t shatter. They have a beautiful translucent glass-like appearance and are more works of art. Wurman continues to experiment with the polymer and also has developed lighting and jewelry with the material.
