Beautifully made, this platter is sand cast using traditional casting techniques. It is made from recycled Aluminium, ususally old engine blocks, pistons or wheel rims. The scrap metal is melted down in a homemade furnace powered by waste engine oil. Once cast the plate is then sanded and polished by hand, giving each piece its own particular uniqueness, story and quality. This design is based on a traditional Swahili pattern.
