Calceiform by Alexander de Vol is a decorative piece turned from Wild Elm wood, sealed with a natural oil and wax finish.
Calceiform by Alexander de Vol, turned from Wild Elm wood. This piece is part of an ongoing investigation into the material properties of green wood. The vessel's thin walls allow the wood to warp naturally as it dries, creating an organic, asymmetric form. This work is very much informed by the processes involved, allowing the material itself to be given prominence.
Material: Elm wood.
Dimensions: Height: cm, Width: cm
Care Instructions: Keep dry and dust-free, no further oiling is required.
Alexander de Vol is a designer, artist and maker whose work investigates the material properties of wood and their transferal into other materials. Alexander uses a mix of traditional casting methods and new technologies to document the natural behavior and movement of the vessels which he crafts from 'green wood', while taking care to preserve the features he feels are aesthetically synonymous with the material's origin. Alongside his artistic practice, Alexander lectures in design at the University of Central Lancashire and his work has been featured in numerous exhibitions, including Burberry’s Makers House in London.
