The Offering Chalice
By Memories of Green
The Critical Mass Collection is inspired by the massive density of a Neutron Star, a star that is close to collapse and creates a Black Hole. The chalices are solid and heavy, designed with reclaimed birch wood from England. The process transforms the material to create beautiful mathematical singularities that deceive the observer in space and shape. Its inconspicuous density is a reminder of the incredible amount of waste we generate.
The aesthetics of the vase are best represented by the rules of Japanese composition, “Ichirin Zashi”, the art of placing a single stem of dry nature on a vase. A hole of about 1-2cm diameter travels across the centre of the piece to be able to place a branch or two as adornment if desired.
All the process to make these pieces is by hand.
