Informed by the volcanic forces of expansion and compression, subtle fluctuations and distortions of ripples envelop their surface. The vases’ sculptural sensibility conveys a characteristic solidity, yet reveals their origin from a fluid state. Surface reflections amplify this perception, adding depth and complexity from the colours and light of their context. The vases translate the inherent beauty of natural systems by continuing a narrative that explores the creation of geological forms.
