Handcrafting is the name of the game when Lambert develops exciting and decorative living accessories. And the Masao containers and bowls are fine examples of this. Each container is not only hand-moulded of metal into its archetypical calabash shape but also finished with a very special surface decoration. The anthracite-coloured patinated surface is adorned with a graphic pattern of brass solder seams which is reminiscent of African water jugs. Each one of these containers and also the elegantly-curved bowl is individually fashioned by the artisan, making each one a slightly different, unique piece. The Masao container should not be filled with water as the material could corrode. If you want to use it as a vase for cut flowers and branches, it is advisable to use a plastic insert for the water.
