Vessel  /  Abstract   Organic
This sculptural vessel demonstrates a masterful control of material and is the culmination of the artist’s desire to create a new form. Using traditional wood-bending techniques most often seen in boat-making, thinly planed strips of ash have been soaked in water and manipulated using a hot iron, before being sanded and stitched together with thin copper wire. The evolution of the form is guided by intuition; the result is a unique organic structure with a continuously smooth surface, and channels which flow through to a large central chamber.
