The Meier bowl’s spare decoration, a rim of pierced squares, reflects Meier’s commitment to the Modernist grid in all his commissions large and small. It also recalls the early 20th century designs of both Joseph Hoffman and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. This is the smallest version of the 3 sizes produced – 6", 10" and 14" diameters. Purchased directly from Cleto Munari in 2021, this version is unusual in that it has four larger pierced squares on each of the sides.
