Paloma's Nest

Paloma's Nest is the creation of Caroline Colom Vasquez, an artist and designer living in Austin, Texas. Paloma's Nest is dedicated to creating Handcrafted Modern Heirlooms - pieces for the home and for the heart.

"The Paloma's Nest collection of bowls, tiles, ornaments and decorative pieces are intended to last for generations, and are thus crafted of the finest natural materials available, including porcelain and clay, wood, paper, and cloth. The inspiration for Paloma's Nest lies in the purity of the materials used, and the idea that something so simple can be so bold".

Caroline, along with her husband José and their team of artisans, strive to create items of meaning and purpose from these natural materials, while leaving the characteristics true. By adding text to the designs, written ideas, feelings, and daydreams are given a place to rest. When names and dates are added, the designs take on special meaning for the recipient and instantly become a Modern Heirloom, cherished for years to come.

Every Paloma's Nest piece - no matter the material - is hand cut, freeform, with no pattern, and every single tiny letter is hand stamped, one by one. This gives each piece its own special variation in the size, shape and layout of the text.

Paloma's Nest is most known for the conception of the Ring Bearer Bowl™, a design that debuted to much international acclaim in 2007. This tiny ceramic dish is intended to replace the ring "pillow" in a wedding celebration, and has created a new tradition in ceremonies around the world. The Ring Bearer Bowl™, which also doubles as a holiday decoration or ring dish in the home, has created a lasting standard in the modern wedding ceremony, and a new form of a family heirloom.
