The F!NK Coolamon Tray is inspired by the traditional indigenous Australian coolamon – a vessel used by Aboriginal women to carry water, gather bush tucker as well as to cradle their babies. Robert Forster has taken this traditional vessel and given us a modern version.
This simple, natural form is individually created using high pressure water to produce a smooth sensual vessel. The object is then pressed to create the pattern and texture on the surface.
Inspiration from Aboriginal dot painting to create impregnated dots running along the belly of the object, producing a spine like appearance or animal tracks. The three different editions: Spine, Track and Edge are available in three signature colours: silver, red and black – the size 260 x 360 x 50mm.
The spirited design is not only a statement piece for modern living, it is also perfectly functional and is suitable for fruit, bread and other delicacies.
