AMALGAMATED

Pencils are utilized when giving form to our thoughts, illustrating our wishes and ideas. They are inseparably fused with craft and arts, representing diverse relationships between artist and their creations. Pencils are extensions of our minds which enable us to transmit information through different mediums and time, collecting knowledge and creating it.

Amalgamated is a collection which explores the relationship of a mass produced ‘tool’ and its individual purpose. The beauty of the pencil as an object seems to go unnoticed if utilised only for their primary purpose. “Amalgamated” is a visual and tactile investigation by using pencils as a raw material. This holistic principle has been the fundament for creating this set of vases; let the pencils become a thing themselves.

The Making of STAN & HARVEY

In this beautifuly made video we show you how the the Stan & Harvey vases are made by Matteo Gonet. They are hand-blown using a pear wood mold. The liveliness of the manufacturing process is reflected in these concepts by Nikolas Kerl. The siblings Stan & Harvey react to touch with a slight swaying motion and thus convey the playful nature of their design. The exceptional ability of the glass blower makes both of these objects one of a kind.

Kintsugi . The Art of Broken Pieces

Kintsugi is the craft in which chipped, cracked or broken ceramic pieces are repaired using a combination of urushi (lacquer) and rice glue. This process inadvertently results in a decoration, the form of which is dictated by the breakage the piece has suffered. Powdered gold is usually applied to the repaired patch or seam before the urushi has set, although less embellished repairs can be made by using urushi alone, materials used do vary. Kintsugi can also be applied to glass. Larger repairs are sometimes enhanced by the later application of decorative patterns or illustrations painted with urushi or a fine grade of powdered metal, in a technique known as maki-e.
