Alexander de Vol
Medusiform (Songs), by wood artist Alexander de Vol, is a footed vessel which forms part of an ongoing investigation into the material properties of green wood. Alexander prefers to work with wild British hardwoods that have been felled in his local area due to recent storm damage or conservation. The very thin walls of this piece allows Alexander’s material to warp naturally as it dries, thus creating an organic, asymmetric form which is entirely unique to this particular object. Alexander aims to create work informed by the processes employed in the making, and allows the material itself (in this case, Elm wood) to take prominence.
