Piriform Bottle I
Alexander de Vol
Piriform Bottle I is a solid bronze artwork by Alexander de Vol. This graceful, pear-shaped vessel is given a gentle patina verdigris green and blue marbling, bestowing the piece with an heirloom-like quality. Alexander designed this work as part of a collection which focuses on the perceived value of organic and synthetic material in art, design and manufacturing. An original wood vessel is created from the green log of a wild Ash tree, locally felled due to storm damage, and then cast in bronze to construct the finished piece. Using both organic and manufactured materials to create a one-off artwork, the artist deftly explores the nature of materiality through his work.
