One of Nambé’s earliest and most beloved designs, the Butterfly bowl was unveiled shortly after the birth of the company in the early 1950s and has transcended generations. Designed by sculptor Richard K. Thomas, this gracefully curved vessel is simple with elongated sides reaching. While delicate in namesake, it is sturdy, weighty and unexpectedly practical. Handcrafted from Nambé’s signature eight-metal aluminum-based alloy which provides everything you look for – the strength of iron, the beauty and luster of silver, and the ability to retain heat or cold extremely well.. Perfect for everything from serving hot pasta to keeping salads crisp.
Nambé has been handcrafting, high-quality, functional designs for the modern lifestyle since 1951. Each exceptional museum-quality piece is designed by an esteemed artist and handcrafted from fine materials with usefulness in mind. Hence the company motto: Nambé is art designed for everyday living.
Many Nambé designs are made from its own signature eight-metal aluminum-based alloy, which possesses the beauty and luster of sterling silver, the durability of iron and the unique ability to retain temperature – hot or cold – for an extended period of time. What’s more, this alloy won’t crack, chip, peel or tarnish as it does not contain silver. Completely food-safe, withstands freezer, oven, stovetop and grill temperatures.
Each Nambé piece goes through a series of shaping, grinding, buffing and polishing steps. Slight imperfections found on the brilliant finish are characteristic of the sand casting process, and because Nambé is handcrafted, no two pieces are exactly alike.
