Concrete Utility Bowl
by Wild + Wood
Materials: Concrete / Beeswax
Diameter: 150mm / 5 15/16″
Height: 50mm / 2″
A vide pooch (French for empty pockets) is simply a small bowl or container kept in a convenient location to empty your pockets into when you walk through the door. This utility bowl is designed and made by British company Wild+Wood, and is perfect for storing everything from nuts and eggs, to all the little things that have no home.
The bowl is made using one of their new seamless moulds which give a sharp and flawless casting. It is then treated with beeswax to give it a slight sheen and a soft touch, and the wax also enhances the natural patination of the material.
Please note we recommend that you use this dish for decorative purposes, rather than as a serving dish for food. As concrete is a porous material it may stain if you put anything wet or oily on it, so it is best used for storage of dry items. It is not dishwasher safe.

Our products are made to order in our workshops in the UK and Portugal. Furniture items currently have a 12-week lead time because of delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic, although some items are in stock and can arrive faster. This is indicated against each product as you select your option (this is also where we update the lead time).
