Bungalow Street Fan's

Just a few of the kind words expressed about Bungalow Street Housewares...  Many thanks to all who have made purchases in 2011. 
Happy New Year! 

  • The bowls arrived yesterday. I LOVE them! Thanks very much, they are wonderful pieces of art. I know they are safe for food, but I don't know if my friends will use them for that because they (especially the large brown bowl) are such show pieces.  Great work.  Thanks again,  Abbie  
  • The concrete bowl is wonderful. I'm sure my girlfriend will be thrilled when she opens it on Chirstmas.  Anthony
  • Beautiful piece, I am thrilled, and will be ordering more.  Abbie
  • Love my new mailbox -- it is stunning!!!  DeLeMer
  • BungalowStreet sent me a great product that I will keep for as long as it lasts. The concrete fruit bowl will hold my produce for a long time to come.  Ajay
  • I've had it (Concrete Bowl) for 3 days, and already had friends ask were they could get one!  John

Bungalow Street Bowls take flight...

Designer Rich Kasten
Pasadena, Ca.
I'm so thankful people are enjoying these bowls.  I've worked with concrete, wood, stone and metal for years in my home consulting and design business... creating special pieces for clients is very rewarding.  My mailboxes have been popular and now the bowls are getting a little buzz.  That's fun because you want what you create to reach people.  When the collector experiences the texture and weight and you can see they really enjoy the piece, that's all part of the creative cycle.
I use a premium grade concrete mixture and that's key but the real magic is in the finishing process which quite a bit goes into.  These bowls are so much more than just a cast shape, they have a look and feel that you simply want to touch and use.  I have a blast creating them.

Three Concrete Vessels by Bungalow Street

Photos don't do these petite bowls justice.  You just want to touch them and that's good because they fit right in the palm of your hand.

Useful for so many things like tea cups, votive holders, oatmeal.  They are sealed with a FDA approved food safe wax and are the perfect unique gift.   Find them at Etsy

The Bungalow Street bowl

These bowls are not the usual chunky vessels you so often see when looking for a concrete bowl.  They have the rustic, minimalist vibe but are also refined and artistic in their look and feel.  This is largely to do with the thinner wall and hand rubbed finishing that Bungalow Street bowls are known for.
