Jade Soft Rim Bowl in Marl


Jade Soft Rim Bowl in the colour marl by multidisciplinary designer Malgorzata Bany is inspired by the language of Florentine architecture. The piece can either be a sculptural statement, or the concave top lends itself well to being an elegant trinket dish.

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 concave top making it suitable for holding jewelry, other trinkets or even potpourri. The Jade collection of furniture and objects has been developed by Malgorzata after time spent in the city of Florence, Italy. A result of Malgorzata's ongoing exploration of abstract form and Florentine architecture, the fabric of the city itself; 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 observation and experience, translating it into abstract form.

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.
