This exclusive, hand-crafted ceramic bowl features a big fish inside and some small fish outside the bowl. It is perfect for putting food in it or as a decorative item. It begs for reflection on the question, 'Would you rather be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond?'


The Story Behind

Big Fish is a unique ceramic bowl, hand-crafted with fish motifs inside and outside. There is a big fish inside the bowl to communicate the idea of big fish in a small pond. On the outside there are several small fish communicating the idea of being a small fish in a big pond. The bowl invites the viewer to pause and reflect about one's current reality. What is is that we want out of life? Sometimes we get so caught up in the daily things that we forget to stop and question.

Would you rather be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond? This is a question many of us struggle with. It appears that a larger place like a big city may give more opportunities to some people where as others are satisfied being in a smaller close-knit community. As I created this unique bowl, I was thinking whether one would want to be a big fish in a small pond or vice-versa. Here's another take by David Lynch on the idea of big fish -

"Ideas are like big fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you've got to go deeper. Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They're huge and abstract. And they are very beautiful." - David Lynch

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
