Patinated Vessels

Patina is a surface layer created by a chemical reaction. The unique surface of the following objects is achieved through experimental technique of metal colouring – each piece has it’s own distinctive vivid lustre which cannot be repeated. This serendipitous procedure contrasts the meticulous process of constructing the vessels.

Wide Open explores the shape of the bowl and a different visual language for silver with colourful patina. Made from two parts joined together, the top is funnelled inside and through the bowl shape leaving an aperture while creating a foot on which the piece leans on.
