THE IDEA

The basic idea behind the UNI-BOWL is to get rid of the classic garlic press which are a pain to clean and can only be used to press...garlic! The UNI-BOWL built in grater  is easy to clean and can be used to grate garlic,shallots,ginger and even prepare puree with fruits like appels and pears!Furthermore,the bowl-shape is perfect to prepare healthy home made vinaigrettes and dipping sauce. No need to transfer these in a separate service bowl!

THE DESIGN

The UNI-BOWL collection was designed by renowned European ceramist Jindrich Dudziak.The bowls are produced in his studio in Mont-Saint-Hilaire,Quebec.

UNI-BOWL: h.-5cm; l.-15cm; lat.-11cm; v.-max. 5oz

GRATER OVAL: h.-3cm; l.-16,5cm; lat.-11cm

HAND MADE PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY

All the bowls are produced using high-quality food safe porcelain and transparent glaze.Each bowl is completely hand-made usingproduction techniques that are quite elaborate.

-The models are designed

-Plaster molds are done based on these models

-Bowls are cast using liquid porcelain

-After drying and retouching, the product is fired in a ceramic kiln for the first time at 955C/1751F

-The bowls are dipped in glaze

-They are then fired in the kiln for a second pass at 1240C/2264F

 First design...

 First mould...

PRODUCTION PLAN

Once the technical challenges are properly addressed, the production will be done in my own ceramic studio.I cumulate more than 25 years of professional experience in the production on unique pieces,small series and large production.Once my Kickstarter goal is reaches,I will initiate production according to the following schedule:

-Creation of the production molds.............1 month

-Production UNI-BOWL...............................3 month

-Wraping and shipping.................................1 month

-We may requireanadditional month in the event that the actual orders are above our prediction

-In other words ,we guarantee that you will receive your order within 6 months from theendof Kickstarter campaign.

NOTES AND USAGE TIPS

Here are some notes and usage tips on UNI-BOWL:

-I personally grantee that all ceramic bowls are made with food-safe materials

-The ceramic bowls areoven anddishwasher-safe

-Microwave oven should be avoided as they may cause the glazing to crack over time

-The resulting products are durable and stable

WHERE THE MONEY GO AND HAW THEY WILL HELP?

I decided to keep the production UNI-BOWL in Canada particularly because it allows me to have complete control on the quality.

500$ is my goal. This amount will cower fabrication of prototypes and video.

I am very happy to have chance present my project to all of you on Kickstarter and I hope that you all will like it.Thank you for your support!
