Inspiration from designer:

A bowl with the silhouette of a river pebble, its edges smoothed and rounded by the rushing current.
The bowls decrease progressively in size, just as pebbles become smaller as the water wears them away.
When three bowls of different sizes are stacked together, their rim heights are identical, so that they appear to have been carved from the same stone.
