This might be the coolest things since the cat first meowed… It’s an Earth Bowl, from Austrian firm Fluid Forms.  Pick a location of your choice, (perhaps that favorite camping spot in the mountains) and plug its coordinates into Fluid Form’s website.  You will then see a satellite image from Google Maps and if you’re down with what you see, order that puppy and within a few weeks you will have a bowl milled by a CNC machine that matches the site’s peaks and valleys!

As you can see, the end result is particularly striking with a multiplex or layered wood, highlighting the striations of the topography.  Quick hint of advice… if you live in Iowa, you’re gonna have to get creative with your site location : ) The Earth Bowls can be ordered HERE, starting at $190 Euros.
