Jade Plinth in Shale

Malgorzata Bany
£145

Jade Plinth in the colour shale is by multidisciplinary designer Malgorzata Bany, is inspired by the language of Florentine architecture. With its smooth, matt exterior and clean lines, this sculptural plinth makes for an elegant centerpiece for a table or sideboard.

The sculptural quality of this piece allows for it to stand alone as a statement. However, there is function imbued in the piece, with the flush top able to support a pillar candle or similar if desired. The Jade collection of furniture and objects have been developed by Malgorzata after time spent in the city of Florence, Italy. Inspired by Florentine architecture and the very fabric of the city itself, the handles are abstract representations of her observations; including the voluminous roughly carved stone facades, the fine lines and sharp returns of vaulted ceilings, lustre smooth surfaces of polished stone sculptures as well as time-based effects of erosion and decay of the historical city. For this collection Malgorzata encapsulates the essence of her visceral experience of the city, and then translating it into abstract form.

Process

This piece is a solid cast from a mould using Jesmonite. Jesmonite is a gypsum based resin that, as well as being robust and resilient, can take on a large range of pigments, textures and aggregates making it ideal for sculptural work. With subtle colours and tones being so crucial to her work, Malgorzata has developed her own colour palette featuring atonal hues that complement and do not distract from the sculptural forms.
