These Bowls Required Thousands of Dollars to Be Manufactured. Literally

There has long been the expression that things are "made of money." But it's not everyday that you come across something actually made of money, like this set of Money Bowls. Each bowl is constructed from £1000 of shredded (and yes, decommissioned) bank notes, which is intended as a reflection on the nature of money.

The bowl itself is designed to be unstable, representing the volitile nature of the finance world, and can be revved up and spun on its own for two minutes, serving as a statement on the circulation of money. But mostly, I just like the idea that you eat your meals from a bed of gelcoat-lined cash every day. [Dezeen]
