I think I am going to have to start creating a category for all things Kuwaiti on my blog (not a bad idea..hmm ).  Must must get myself to Kuwait to explore all their lovely goodies there . Here is a combination of two things I love arabic calligraphy with functional art is what you get with Silsal Ceramics.  Beautifully crafted stoneware that is boldly modern with its arabesque theme.  I love the tea cup sets, plates, vases… I love them all !!

Here is more about Silsal Ceramics:

For over 20 Years, Silsal Ceramics has been producing traditionally inspired stoneware functional art. Located in Amman, Jordan, Silsal’s passion for this traditional craft is complemented by a dedication to social responsibility as well as cultural enrichment and environmental consciousness.

The designs and shapes featured at Silsal Ceramics are modern renderings inspired by historical traditions. Using stoneware clays, Silsal’s artisans form and then fire each piece at very high temperatures before applying home-mixed, matte glazes from original recipes. Entirely functional, each unique art piece is ideal as a gift, home accessory, or for everyday use; each piece is microwavable, dishwasher safe, and lead-free.

The Silsal Collection features several lines inspired by the Bronze Age, the Mamluk period, other Islamic and regional motifs, and a modern, minimalist line. Ranging from purely decorative, to special use, to everyday home accessory, each item is carefully crafted into an original work of art.
