Loa and Vesu silver vases for Wiener Silber Manufactur

Traditionally handcrafted by Viennese silversmiths established in 1882 Wiener Silber Manufactur, the Loa and Vesu silver vases express a powerful dynamic through their intricate surface complexity. Informed by the volcanic forces of expansion and compression that have generated the subtle fluctuations and distortions of ripples enveloping their surface, the vases’ sculptural forms convey 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.
