My latest collection Aquatopia draws a dystopian picture of our fresh water supply, the increasing demand and pollution. In this narrative, pure water is on the verge of depletion and therefore transforms into precious material.
The collection comprises of performance vessels for drinking and hygiene. The pieces can be either used as such or simply as objects to display water like a homage. Executed in copper and glass, the chosen materials, including water are commonly used for storage and transport. Inspired by water systems and pipes, original plumbing parts were used and coated with copper. Build-up’s of small metal formations alongside the vessels demonstrate the principle of ‘no water- no growth’.
