Giant Shook Metallic Calceiform
Alexander de Vol
Giant Shook Metallic Calceiform is a footed, decorative vessel by Alexander de Vol. Continuing an ongoing investigation into the material properties of green wood, this long, bulb-like piece has been hand-carved and left with a jagged rim to convey the natural curvature of the tree’s trunk. Sourcing his wood from ecologically felled trees, Alexander has created a fascinating collection of work, exclusively for The New Craftsmen, which incorporates the unique quirks and natural features of ancient British hardwoods. This elegant vessel proudly displays a prominent crack caused by shocks to the tree over its lifespan. Thinly carved walls allow for natural warping as the piece dries, encouraging organic, asymmetric form.
