In the line of duty our military personnel can incur wounds that persist the remainder of their lives. Often times they bear these wounds so gracefully the people around them have no idea what they suffer.
Other times they need significant medical treatment to improve their quality of life.
Each bowl in the collection is either significantly cracked or has a large missing piece. The holes are woven closed with waxed twine. The repaired bowls are symbolic of the wounds incured in combat and mended by medical treatment. Much like the people who have experienced hardship, what gives these bowls their special beauty is the trauma and repair they have undergone.
20% of the purchase price of each bowl in the Cracked But Not Broken Collection goes to support our wounded military. This is a new program for Joe Joe Beans Design, with only limited stock. We look forward to watching it grow and being able to make significant donations in 2020.
When you give a gift from Joe Joe Beans Design you are giving a gift that was handmade by an artist in a workshop, not mass-produced by a machine in a factory.
Thank you for shopping small and supporting handmade artists.
