Sand, is a natural component of micro crushed rock and finely grained minerals that mostly surround our environment as we utilize it in construction as a composite for concrete mix. As delicate as it is this material that fills voids acting as a second or third material, is now completed as a mass, as the main character, in this great creation by Industrial Designer Leetal Rivlin, born and graduated in Israel.
I can’t judge her interest in sand, as we Caribbean inhabitants love the caress of this fun material as it also means carrying it on your shoes and clothes everywhere. But isn’t it a good idea? Carry this mineral in the form of a beautiful pendant or even a bowl of fruits on your table, pretty much resembles a memory at the beach, a personal wedding or any other ceremony, even friendship.
Sand box is a collection of bowls and pendants (with more ideas to come i bet), and is mostly a mixture between sand and liquid adhesives, altered in color and viscosity in order to create the desired elements and movement in her pieces. Enjoy more designs from Leetal at her website.
