Winter is a period of stillness.
Short days and long nights.
Recent technological innovations have made the process of working
with marble easier and more accessible to artists and designers. I was interested in
finding the balance or limits between traditional stone sculpting techniques and
technology. The subtle delicacy of the marble fold and its transformation from
thick to thin reveals the limit of CNC technology and highlights the capacity of
the artisan’s hand. It plays a trick on the eyes, as marble appears to fold down like fabric at one end while a metal rod (seemingly) secures its base.
The theme of seasons and time to highlight craftsmanship and
contemporary design. There were twelve objects, 3 crafts and designs for each season. This project belongs to winter. Made possible with ECAL and Vacheron Constantin.
