Alexander de Vol
Bronze Pirifom vessel by Lancashire-based craftsman Alex de Vol is inspired by the relationship between maker and material. This work represents an ongoing series of investigations in bronze and is a one-off artwork which tangibly explores form and finish. Alex often scours the landscape for fallen trees, each with a story of its own; translating the age and integrity of timber is central to his work. The organic features of the natural material are juxtaposed by their casting in a highly refined and metal alloy, bronze.
