Husque Walter Bowl

$145.00

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 Walter bowl is named after Sir Walter Hill, the first superintendant of the old Brisbane Botanical Gardens from 1855 to 1881, responsible for being the first to cultivate a macadamia tree in 1858, which still stands and bares nuts in the rainforest section of the City Botanical Gardens in Brisbane.

Fabrication: macadamia shell and polymer

Dimension: H6cm x W14cm
