My in-laws recently came back from a trip to Israel and brought us a beautiful David Gerstein bowl.
Gerstein is a contemporary Israeli artist who I was first introduced to when I interned at the Eden Fine Art (http://www.edengallery.com/) gallery on Madison and 50th. I like some of his public space art like “Butterflies Flight” (this image does NOT do it justice)
Some of his wall sculptures really make an impact when you see them in person like some of his brushstrokes series
Anyway, we love the bowl- how colorful it is and how thoughtful the gift was, but we can’t figure out where to put it. It’s a bowl, but we’re probably not going to use it as a bowl unless we stick a bunch of lemons (?) in there for decoration. We have the option of putting it on the wall as art, but we don’t know where- we would want it on a white background to get the most out of the color. We can also put it on a stand on a bookshelf or something, which seems like the frontrunner at this point.
