Natalie Slater is inspired by ice cream, and we totally get it. “I have been making these ceramic 'Ear Bowls' for the last couple of years because I love cute happy faces on everything,” she says. “Its a disease I have.”
But her new collection has Dee Dee’s Ice Cream’s (5668 Cornwallis Street) many flavours to thank for the big grins, each one’s derived from a specific flavour. Slater’s very sweet bowls and matching spoons (like Mint Chocolate Chip and Banana Cardamom, pictured here) arrive at Dee Dee’s tonight (Wednesday!) as part of Ice Cream Heads a show that’ll run until August 28th or until supplies last, which, at $25 a pop might not be long. Get the scoop, and a scoop (free with bowl purchase), at the opening tonight from 6 until 8pm.
Slater says of her hand-built and hand-painted pieces, “They are unique in their personalities and imperfections, I hope they all find happy homes.”
