local bowls by rona zinger

construction boards with mixture of israeli soil; sand; flour and water

this project deals with the inner-outer home surrounding relations. the vast colorful and material beauty found both in the urban settings and the great outdoors grasp our attention, yet rarely transform into the interior space of the home. this phenomenon occurs mainly because of their rough and massive appearance. these objects allow the exterior view to come inside the home. this is to say that through the reversal of the relationships and the hierarchy between the raw materials: old boards and a mixture of soils that I used, I have created objects that combine the wilderness with the gentleness of the homely esthetics. the fruit bowl completes the circle of life linking earth, wood and its fruits in one object the boards cut into shape and pattern then assembled together and filled in with different soil mixtures from the israeli outdoor ground.
