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.

Dawama (Spin Top) | Emblazoned on the former notes of Kuwait are children occupied in playing historic games. These games brought together the community as an innocent and unprovocative occupation, and still live on in our stories. One of these games is the Dawama. The Dawama communicates the multinational nature of Kuwaiti culture, as a trade route, where a game that had a Kuwaiti adaptation was not necessarily designed in Kuwait but instead imported from other countries and gained significance through storytelling. 

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.
