earthenware bowl fashioned around the shape of a beetle nut leaf. The beetle nut leaf is often chewed by the people of the sub continent. Even though the culture is now greatly reduced this is a tribute to common cultural habits that span across physical boundaries.
The chunky turquoise bowl has been inspired by the rock pools that form on the edge of the Indus river in the northern regions of Pakistan. The brilliant contrast between clear icy water and the raw river stone has been highlighted in this piece. Further due to the historic availability of copper carbonate most of the ancients used copper in their clay traditions.
