They say you are what you eat, and we say you're also what you eat from. Melanie and Justin Mckenny, the creative geniuses behind Vegetabowls, slip-cast this line of dishwasher-safe pottery directly from real fruits and vegetables. Each piece is then individually hand-painted with non-toxic, food-safe glazes to remarkable trompe-l'oeil effect. A born and bred New York brand, Melanie and Justin both received their BFAs from Alfred University in Alfred, NY, and now live in Melanie's hometown of Buffalo. Among other sources, the New York-grown produce from the just-down-the-street North Tonawanda Farmer's Market provides major inspiration for their castings from season to season.
