COPPER CRUCIBLERegular price $195.00
Origin: Bhala, Sultanate of Oman
Copper has been mined and smelted in the hills of Oman for more than 5,000 years. The inhabitants of Oman were among the earliest people in the world to practice the art of smelting, and copper work laid the foundation for all subsequent forms of metallurgy.
This copper crucible is hand made in Bhala from local Omani copper and is traditionally used for the pouring of freshly distilled rosewater. Its long sculpted spout pours beautifully for the purpose of washing the hands, bottling liquids, or as a bowl for the serving or display of various items.
This is a handmade item therefore each piece is unique, with sizes varying ever so slightly. Crafted from one hundred percent Omani copper in the Sultanate of Oman.
To care for this item please wipe clean with a warm damp cloth, gentle soap optional.
A natural patina will develop over time. ~2.5"h x 7"w x 4.5"d ~7.58oz
A collaboration with nature
We believe in fostering curiosity and reverence for nature’s biodiversity, employing a scientific and holistic approach to our creations that inspires a reconnection with our most primordial sense and elicits a shift in consciousness.
Nature is our ultimate guide
With profound admiration for botanical species native to climate zones across the world, we strive to spread awareness about the need to conserve the beautiful lands that allow these plants to thrive while giving back to local and indigenous communities that have cultivated them for centuries.
To ensure efficacy and an experience of the highest quality Bio Alchemy Olfactive travels the world to source each botanical ingredient and offering, working closely with farmers, ethnobotanists, harvesters, distillers, and surrounding communities.
Traceability and sustainability are integral to our work. The botanical materials that make up our collection are sourced with an eye towards sustainable growth practices, mindful cultivation and extraction, and reverence for the cultural traditions that have dictated their use for centuries.
All products are formulated in Bio Alchemy Olfactive’s private lab with exclusively sourced ingredients. Each bottle is hand poured, labeled and packaged. Our packaging, from shipping boxes, water activated tape, and protective wrap to shipping labels are plastic free and made from 100% post consumer waste with recycled ink, making them fully recyclable and naturally biodegradable. No forests are damaged in production.
Products packaged in glass vials are intended for reuse and are tied with hand spun natural Peruvian alpaca twine from the women of a small community with whom we work.
We prioritize eco-friendly and responsibly sourced packaging materials in effort to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible.
