Tombac
21 x 21 x 20 cm
Selected Finalist at the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize 2022.

Forged from tombac (a brass alloy containing 85% copper, 15% zinc) that has been mounted from seven asymmetric rings, hammered, stacked, and soldered together, the vase has then been carefully polished and patinated. The technique requires a mastery of the material, made even more skilled by the form’s partial asymmetry. The composition lends the work a sense of optical movement and shifting equilibrium.
