Grain Vessel - Slice Cut
- Grain vessel series, slice cut 2021 by artist Zoe Robertson and Dual Works
- Constructed from salvaged granulated polymer, thermoformed and processed via a combination of plastismith techniques. Includes ABS plastic and high density engineering foam
- Part of the RE:animate collection which explores a fascination with material alchemy. As a plastismith Zoe has been experimenting with salvaged plastic whereby remnants of previous works have been granulated and then thermoformed via fusing and pressing into new material. This laminated reformed flat sheet is then vacuumed formed to create three dimensional forms which are finely sanded to penetrate the coloured layers revealing unexpected pattern
- Akin to mokume-gane, this element of surprise is particularly captivating as the unexpected nature defines the visual aesthetic revealing distinctive layered patterns with a diffused painterly effect
