Dual Bowls: Striking Mixed Metal Bowls Forged With the Ancient Art of Sand-Casting (11 pics)




Fusing ancient techniques with contemporary aesthetic, Dual Bowls are one-of-a-kind vessels forged from a mixture of recycled brass, copper, zinc, or nickel in this new project from artist Kawther Al Saffar . The bowls are made in partnership with the Alwafi Foundry in Kuwait who utilize a variety of sand-casting methods with sand acquired from the nearby Nile river. Instead of masking or eliminating imperfections left behind from the casting process, Saffar chose to highlight them, giving each bowl a unique design while referencing the inherent complexity of forging a single object from two different materials. Saffar was born and raised in Kuwait and attended the Rhode Island School of Design where she studied industrial design, and you can see more of her work in her portfolio . Dual Bowls are currently funding on Kickstarter , and it looks like they smashed their funding goal almost immediately.
