A decidedly unusual artefact, that defies definition.‎ It can be used as a centrepiece, fruit bowl, and for a host of other purposes.‎ This stems from an age-old process of our workshop, used in the Sixties.‎ It is produced in white bronze, with a polished interior, while the exterior undergoes a special burnishing and oxidation process, to obtain stunning colours of ivory black, burnt earth and platinum grey.‎ The volume is roughened with a hammered finish.‎ The border that underlines and reinforces the contours of the object is applied by hand and then flame welded.‎
Work of superior quality.‎
The upper section, which partially conceals the content from view, seems to be the remains of a gash, created from an irresistible need to reveal the secret contents of this strange object.‎
But there is also an esoteric meaning behind it: the cut on the upper section is a clear reminder of the well known symbol in ancient Chinese philosophy that represents the opposites, the intrinsic duality in the material world: in this case presence-absence.‎ Only a personal search leads to an understanding of the absolute and perception of the unit, here represented by the lower integral section.‎
