On a summers dusk wandering by shoreline rock pools in our seaside town of Yeppoon, we envisaged creating our own vessel to cradle our smudge sticks, palo santo and crystals.
While we love the gorgeous beauty of Abalone shells which are commonly used as smudging vessels, we just didn’t feel like they quite fit the eco-kind Nourished Cove lifestyle.
Instead, we wanted to capture our wanderings by the ocean - feel the textures, see the colours and depth of seaside rocks and bring that into the Cove and into our homes in a creative form that could fit the palm of our hands.
We discovered an Australian pottery artist on the Gold Coast who help bring our creatives into our dream smudging vessel, our Sea Pod.
Our Smudge Sea Pods are raw - they’re inspired by the rocks that we explore, they are a earthly hue in colour with a light brush of moonlight white... reminiscent of sea rocks glittering at night under a full moon.
Our name for our vessels ‘Sea Pod’ is an infusion of our new and old life - our life is now by the coastal rural Sea, but we once lived an urban city life in Brisbane, surrounded by magnificent fire blooming poinciana trees that had seed pods that we would wild forage to shake and rattle. The Sea + Pod bring homage nostalgic memories that have led to the creative birth of Nourished Cove.
We’re drawn to textures so our Sea Pods are delightfully gritty and our vessel curves like the waves of the sea.
Our Sea Pods are 100% Australian designed and Australian made.
