bowls that rock

As a music and art lover, Sean Zeph couldn’t bear to part with his vinyl albums. But after a Google search, he found a clever and creative way to recycle them.

Two years ago, Zeph started Brushed-Up Bowls in Raleigh, NC. Using scratched and discarded vinyl records, he paints, melts and shapes the record into a colorful and functional bowl.

His first painted vinyl bowl was a hit. It featured a Rolling Stones album with the famous red tongue and lip logo in the center.

Since then, Zeph has found fans at music and art festivals, like Bonnaroo in Tennessee. Record bowls by The Beatles, Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd are best sellers. In the South, soul and classic rock are tops.

Choose the colors and the style of music you like.

Also ask about a custom order of a favorite or prized album in your collection. Repurposed bowls range from $50 to $75.
