Description

Sandcast Tableware represents the story of an individual living between different cultures, with a fragmented experience of their home town, as well as wider experience of the world. The series combines a sense of nostalgia, play, and critical probing of the meaning of culture.

Growing up in a conservative Islamic society in Kuwait aspects of culture that contradicted an innocent and Islamic portrayal were censored. Despite this antique and ornate ashtrays made of glass and metal were scattered all around islamic houses and used for food waste. They were beacons of this dichotomy. For children raised within Western culture the Tafayah references the moral chasm between millennials upbringing and that of older generations in Kuwait.

This piece has a live finish that will patina naturally with time adding to the beauty of the product. Each piece comes packaged in a felt-lined, spun aluminium container.
