One of Werkstätte Carl Auböck’s most famous pieces, this bowl was conceived as a crown shape in the early 50’s, but gained international acclaim in 1957 for its surprising similarities to the famous Edgerton milk drop photograph. This bowl measures 2.7 inches and is made from solid bronze. Showcased in Mondo Cane’s 2010 Auböck show, this piece was lauded by the New York Times as one of Auböck ’s best handcrafted brass accessories.

In 1926, after two years at the Bauhaus School, CARL AUBÖCK returned to Austria to take over his father’s workshop. Over the next ten years Auböck developed the style that would make him famous and beloved of contemporaries such as Walter Gropius, Richard Neutra and Charles Eames. At the Triennale de Milano in 1954, he was award four gold medals for his work and today he is remembered as one of the masters of Austrian modernism. Auböck pieces are collected globally by tastemakers like Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Maharam, and Carl Auböck’s grandson, Carl Auböck IV, continues to run the Auböck Werkstätte today.
