Husque Arthurs Soap Dish
Husque is an innovative design product by Marc Harrison made with the native Australian macadamia nutshell. Husque takes the waste shell from the locally farmed nut and creates these unique bowls. The recycled shell is pulverised and reformed with a polymer. A coloured lining is then applied and hand polished to a beautiful lustre.
The Ferdinand Frag bowl is named after Ferdinand Von Mueller, the German geographer and botanist who is officially recognised as the person responsible for identifying and naming the macadamia, after its retrieval from an expedition to Pine Rivers, north of Brisbane in 1856. He named it after his friend Dr John Macadams.
Fabrication: macadamia shell and polymer
