From Farm To Table

Tableware designer Rosanna Bowles hopes to reinvigorate the tabletop business with a completely new venture--food. The new Farm Girl line of jams, jellies, honey, syrup, soaps and candles is produced exclusively in the Pacific Northwest and is meant to both support small American farmers and induce consumers to better understand and appreciate the food they eat. To help them savor and enjoy the food, Rosanna has produced a line of accessory tabletop items such as covered butter dishes and small bowls called Farmhouse Pantry. Both the food and the tabletop will be introduced at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market this month. Bowles, whose company is based in Seattle, considers the project a true labor of love, and "a way to get people to the table."--Allison Zisko
