Solid Pourers
Photographer: Odi Caspi
Solid Pourers play with the idea of the inside invisible space by banishing it. Taking the form of vessels – jugs or pourers of some sort – these pieces are made from solid brass with sterling silver spouts. Removing the holding space or the void from a familiar object questions the relationship between inside and outside that so characterises the way in which we orientate ourselves within the world. Brass with Sterling Silver, 160x160x25mm each, 2015

Containers
Photographer: Odi Caspi
‘Containers’ plays directly with notions of ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ and especially the threshold that lies between the two. Emerging almost as ’drawings come to life’ - with hand-drawn and hand-pierced edges, the pieces have an ambivalent relationship to the ideas of ‘in’ and ‘out’ both within themselves and between each other. Each piece, fabricated from patinated mild steel with sterling silver has a character of its own and its own idea of the spaces in which inside becomes outside and outside surrounds inside. Patinated Mild Steel, 450x500x300mm, 2015
Four Pourers
Photographer: Odi Caspi
Four Pourers interrogates the jug form, with solids outlines and spaces. Fabricated from patinated brass, the pieces can be arranged and rearranged, each having its own character and voice communicated through its form.
