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.

Baloo’aa Coaster (Manhole Coaster) | In countries around the world manhole covers have been used as sculptural reliefs within an urban environment, and have been customised as subtle emblems of local taste. In Kuwait the abstracted pattern pictured in this coaster is quite common and has become an unnoticed part of our vernacular. Despite some of the manhole covers being fabricated in Kuwait and others being fabricated abroad, and imported, they are primarily variations of the same pattern. Upon being called to attention a local of Kuwait will recall a nostalgic familiarity with the pattern.

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.
