SHOP: Bake, Chill and Serve in Beatriz Ball’s Eco-Friendly Metalware

March 22, 2011

In a world of mass production, handmade is the true luxury.”  Beatriz Ball, metal artist. 

We couldn’t agree more!  This Spring, our Floral and Fine Gift retail boutique, Evantine at The Rittenhouse, is showcasing a variety of new products made by skilled artisans from around the world.   It’s our pleasure to introduce the award-winning and eco-friendly, Beatriz Ball Collection of Fine Metalware from Mexico City, Mexico.

 

Founded in 1991, the Beatriz Ball Collection is comprised of elegant bowls, platters and service vessels that are handmade, one at a time, using the ancient art of sand casting.  Each innovative design is made using 100% recycled aluminum that, in its molten state, is poured into sand molds and then polished over and over again until nothing but a high shine remains.  In fact, each creation will be touched by up to twelve different artists before the piece is finished and ready for purchase.  Shown above, the new ANTIK Collection breathes new life into the timeless form of antiquity. Using the wavy lines and decorative patterns found in Latin cultural fabrics and hand painted pottery, sand molds were made to offer a textural statement for the modern table.  

Selected by many brides and grooms for its contemporary styling, Beatriz Ball metalware is also celebrated for its heirloom qualities and durability. Not only do these stunning pieces look sensational on the table but they are also functional!  They will not tarnish or lose their shine and can be used to heat, chill and safely serve food.  The perfect gift for Spring bridal showers, weddings and Mother’s Day celebrations.

Available now at Evantine at The Rittenhouse.  210 West Rittenhouse Square, Lobby Level, Philadelphia 215-790-2576. 

WE LOVE: Bond No. 9 Perfume “Making Scents of New York”

October 1, 2010

 

We love the whole concept of Bond No. 9 – an entire fragrance collection designed to pay tribute to the great city of New York one neighborhood at a time.  In fact, each fragrance represents a specific downtown, midtown, or uptown locale or a city-wide sensibility or philosophy.  When you think of wearing a fragrance called Brooklyn or East Harlem, ya gotta wonder what the heck you’ll be smellin’ like, no?  and what makes the scent of Bleecker Street so appealing?  Well, come on over to our retail boutique at The Rittenhouse and get a whiff of the “city” for yourself.  We’ve got an eau de parfum just for you, maybe two, and displayed in some of the most cleverly designed bottles we’ve ever seen!  

Available exclusively at Evantine, The Boutique, 210 West Rittenhouse Square, 215-790-2576, M-S 10:00am to 6:00pm.
