Crushed Metal effects on simple earthen ware Pots

A light gauge easily handled aluminum foil usually used for food stuff to wrap in oven cooking. The foil is soft enough to be easily crushed with hands. Then paste with simple white glue on the simple earthen pots. Let it dry and then apply dense black, pigmented India ink over the crushed foil. Apply it with simple cotton swab. It will give a rich metallic look to the pots.
Tooled metal has had many applications over years. Tin ceiling, popular in mid-19th to 20th century American buildings, roofs used in tropical climates, decorative lanterns and ornaments from Mexico, all of these are great examples of functional tool metal.

Handmade Jute Vase A Unique Specimen of Tradition and Style

A long tradition of jute work coupled with contemporary range of colors and style make this handmade jute vase a unique specimen of tradition and style
Pakistani handicrafts are always rich in variety owing to great diversity in the cultural set-up of Pakistani society. The handicraft produced in far flung regions of Pakistan are unique and possess great historical traditions and artistry.
Jute can be raised and manufactured cheaply, but is not so strong or so lasting as flax.
Jute threads are running around it. I used handdyed jute to embellished it further. It can match any decor.
