Hi this is my first post so I hope I have put it in the right place.
This lidded form is made of ash. 150mm dia x 130 high. The main form has been textured, stained and made to look like aged copper. The lid is beech which has been aged using copper foil/solid copper, and patinating techniques. The bar is black bamboo.
The inspiration from this piece comes from an interest in wabi-sabi, the Yayoi period of Japan and Nambu Tekki being Japanese iron work. These have been used as a point of reference rather than a replica of an actual piece.
The philosophy being that of impermanence, beauty from simple objects to name a few. The piece was finished about a month ago.
