While the name of these Lifesaver Bowls ($495) is derived from their candy-like colors, their dream-like designs could sweeten even my most sour of days. I just wish I could afford one of these hand-blown masterpieces, particularly in this economy. The bowls/vases were created by New York-based glass blowing artist John Pomp, whose work has been featured in a slew of esteemed publications, such as Vogue, Elle Décor, and the now-defunct House & Garden. I hope to see much more of his work in the future . . . preferably in my own home.
