Piriform (Souls V)
Alexander de Vol
Piriform (Souls V) is a footed vessel by wood artist Alexander de Vol, 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. This particular tree, sourced from Lancashire, is estimated to be 150 years old. The vessel’s walls are thin, allowing the material to warp naturally as it dries, thus creating an organic, asymmetric form which is entirely unique. Alexander aims to create work informed by the processes employed in the making, and allows the material itself (in this case, sycamore wood) to take prominence.
