Designed for the Brooklyn based producer Areaware's Fall 2016 collection. The Radial Vessels are part of an ongoing investigation (see Pedestals) of how scale and proportion impact our understanding of form and function. Inspired by the ways in which plants transform our experience of interior space, the paired down palette and restrained geometric forms are intended to highlight the organic wildness of the anticipated contents.
The vessels in the Radial Collection share restricted geometries–the angles become more prominent as the height and diameter of the object increases or decreases resulting in various formal and functional iterations. From material choice (Clay) to the overall dimensions the vessels in this collection both reference and expand the visual and material language established by the ubiquitous, industrially produced clay planter.
Dimensions–Planter: 9"L x 9"W x 10.5H", Vase: 6"L x 6"W x 6"H, Dish: 7"L x 7"W x 2"H
