Piriform Bottle II
Alexander de Vol
Piriform Bottle II is a graceful ceramic artwork by Alexander de Vol. This pear-shaped vessel is given a gentle, bronzed patina which bestows 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. Thrown from a mix of highest quality porcelain clays and finished with metal oxides, the piece is also glazed on the inside with wood ash from burned waste shavings. By using both organic and manufactured materials to create a one-off artwork, Alexander deftly explores the nature of materiality through his work.
