Nkuku Hand Etched Iron Bowl

A small iron bowl with an antique nickel finish for home décor, handcrafted in India


Why We Love This

This simple hand-etched bowl from India with a traditional pattern is an object for the home that feels both ancient and modern. It’s versatile enough to place anywhereóempty as an art object or filled with a collection of small items. It also makes a perfect hostess gift.


Nkuku sources homewares directly from global artisans. Made from iron with an antique nickel finish, this bowl’s exterior has a slightly hammered, textured surface while its interior is smooth, with a band of geometric design at the rim incised by hand. Crafted in Jodhpur by Jagdish, an expert in decorating metal sheets using traditional techniques, this decorative bowl is polished to a patina. Jagdish works in metal because it is durable yet malleable and responds well to a variety of designs. Nickel is also said to help promote creativity and deflect negative energy to lighten the spirit.
