Tephra Vase 002
Drawing its name from the geological term indicating the petrified fragments spat from volcanoes, the objects from the Tephra collection are built using specially treated flowers mounted on sculptural forms made of metal and jute, metallised using a thermo-coating technique that covers the dense textures in a paper-thin layer of molten metal, resulting in an almost Pompeiian effect of silhouettes covered in volcanic debris.
Developed for MAKE Hauser & Wirth Somerset.
