POLARITY & UNITY is a series of vessel objects which explore the sensory qualities of materials and examine the concept of polarity. Each vessel object consists of two half spheres which perfectly nest inside each other. The two half spheres are made from materials with highly contrasting visual and tactile qualities. The copper vessel is highly polished on the outside and reflects light and its surroundings – on the inside the metal reveals a line texture which is engraved by hand. The ceramic vessel is made from red earthenware clay which is perforated by hand and sanded and polished after firing to achieve a very tactile, velvety, porous and matt surface with light absorbing qualities. The two vessels not only compliment each other visually, assembled they become ONE playfully balanced unity. The object invites to engage and to become playful.
Material: Copper: polished outside, engraved inside; Earthenware: perforated by hand
