SiO₂ ‘1755’

The latest piece in our Si02 vessel series. 

This piece, an elongated version of our much loved Twisted Pair, stands just short of 6ft tall. Ever since we delved into the unexplored process of 3D printing in sand we had ambitions to push it to its very limits, just as we would any other craft process.

Playing on the success of our Twisted Pair and it’s figurative references we knew that a life-size version of this piece was next in line. But despite this piece being built by machine, there are always limitations, and the size and scale of this artwork generated many unknowns.

Combining the skills and knowledge of experts we were able to create our dream piece, and are proud to present it for Masterpiece Art Fair 2021.

Flat Fish

The Flat Fish is the fourth and latest edition in the Si02 series. Gareth employs a new technique of 3D printing and continues to stretch the limits of printing in raw sand.

The vessel captures an act of digital manipulation in physical space. The perplexing form unites a plethora of vessels within one singular object. It appears to warp and stretch before your eyes, the waved grooves twisting and bending like lines in the sand.

SiO₂

With each iteration of the vessel, Gareth tests the limits of craft, both in materiality and human perception.

15 years on from the production of his first vessel, but wanting to challenge the ever-changing boundaries of digital manufacturing and its relationship to craft still, Gareth employs a new technique of 3D printing.

Despite consistent progress in digital CNC manufacturing, there are still limitations. In a bold move Gareth steps away from his expert material, wood, and for the first time explores the possibilities of another raw material, sand. The fluid, yet solid substrate allows for endless configurations, giving Gareth the opportunity to materialise designs he once could only dream about.

Gareth believes the machine to be an extension of the human hand, and that the eradication of the chisel does not deduct from the craftsmanship deeply rooted within every stage of the production of these vessels.
