Lena Dunham Is Obsessed with These Porcelain Bowls—and You Should Be Too
Lena Dunham has no qualms about breaking the internet's fourth wall. In fact, one scroll through the Girls star's Instagram feed will reveal dozens of snaps from her personal life, including—but definitely not limited to—ringing endorsements for products and causes she's exceedingly passionate about. The latest thing to prompt an upload? Brooklyn-based artist Isabel Halley's handmade ceramic bowls.
Dunham snapped the porcelain stunners as part of her newly launched Insta feature #specialthingsundays, where she'll share something she's coveting from an independent female artist (full disclosure: Halley is also a childhood friend of the actress). Each "pinch pot" measures approximately 1.5 inches high and 3 to 4 inches wide and features a luster rim in either gold, silver, or mother of pearl ($35 each; isabelhalley.com). The charmingly lumpy form is unique in every piece.
Halley even offers the bowls in a set of six as a Seder plate—emblazoned with Hebrew writing on the bottom—meant to hold the six symbolic foods typically used during the ceremonial meal. But they work just as well to hold other special belongings. "These make people really happy and are a nice place to store your spare beads or secret talismans," Dunham writes in the caption of her 'gram. We won't argue with that.
