Design in traditional contexts cannot be removed from function. Whether a vessel holds a physical or intangible purpose - function influences form, and form function. The pieces in this collection are an exploration of traditional shapes and plant symbols found in the Nubian culture bordering the North Eastern region of the Sahara desert, in modern day Northern Sudan and Southern Egypt. Two vessels represent clay shapes that were essential to survival in the desert climate - the water storage clay amphorae and wood grain pounder, while two others designs are anchored in the mystical and symbolic properties of plants which were essential to the ritualistic and spiritual aspects of this culture.
