Red Sand Bowl
Silver bowl with a concave top funnelling to the interior of the bowl, containing trapped grains of red sand.
'Red Sand Bowl' belongs to the 'Tactile series' - contemplative objects especially designed to contain substances which attract attention through their sensory qualities but cannot be retrieved. Handling the vessels triggers the senses by their smooth surface as well as by the sound and fluidity of the particles held inside.
Materials and techniques
Sterling silver, part spun and part raised, hard soldered and finished with pumice lumps and sanding pads to achieve satin finish. Contains red sand from an hour glass.
Purchase of 'Red Sand Bowl' (2012) supported by a donation from Nicholas and Judith Goodison.
