Shook Metallic Gudetama
Alexander de Vol
Shook Metallic Gudetama is a footed, decorative vessel by Alexander de Vol. Continuing an ongoing investigation into the material properties of green wood, this bulb-like piece has been hand-carved and left with a jagged rim to convey the natural curvature of the tree’s trunk. Sourcing his wood from ecologically felled trees, Alexander has created a fascinating collection of work, exclusively for The New Craftsmen, which incorporates the unique quirks and natural features of ancient British hardwoods. This vessel proudly displays prominent scarring caused by shocks to the tree over its lifespan and thinly carved walls allow for natural warping as the piece dries, encouraging organic, asymmetric form.
