BRASS VASE #128
For Local Design’s Milan exhibition, A.C.V studio has created a series of brass vases, each with different curves and gradients, to celebrate the smallest flower, the weed gathered on the walk home, the humble twig or the cultivated bloom.
A.C.V studio is an experimental practice that takes the role of the craftsperson into the field of the designer, whilst maintaining the singularity and the nuance of pieces all produced by one individual. A.C.V studio is the project of artist Anna Varendorff, who’s formal training as a metalsmith and artist is adapted to make day to day objects from the intersection of a materials’ potential, a utilitarian need and a thoughtful conceptual space.
The inherent limits that accompany single person production are celebrated by A.C.V studio, and the special gesture that is present in the work of a craftsperson is seen as a point of distinction in each piece. No two pieces are ever exactly the same.
For Local Design’s recent Milan exhibition, A.C.V studio created a series of brass vases, each with different curves and gradients, to celebrate the smallest flower, the weed gathered on the walk home, the humble twig or the cultivated bloom. Theses vases vary in scale from 400mm to 900mm tall, and are all one off pieces. The clean, gilded lines of the brass vases hold foliage up for inspection, they celebrate a simple fragment of nature and in themselves they offer a moment to examine the special details of plants around us.
All pieces are custom made starting from $310 – $720 plus shipping.
