Hala is interested in the loss of control in design. With The Liminal Vase she invites the natural process into her design, using salt formations. Playing with the usability of salt as a building material, Hala gives up part of her authoritarian role by allowing the crystallisation process to dictate the formal qualities of the surface. The salt crystals are grown on Aluminium Mesh to lend the material the necessary strength to be utilised in a vase without controlling it. It is this juxtaposition between organic process and intentional design that triggered her enquiry.
