Cloud is a family of bulbous and sculptural pieces made of highly reflective polished aluminium. The collection includes a platter, bowl, short and tall vessel which are expressive handmade artefacts that are hammered and braised in India by skilled artisans.
Tom’s background in metal working and fascination with the vanishing skills of hand panel beating inspired the aesthetics of the range.
More about Cloud
The marks from the maker – every hammer and indentation from stretching and warping the metal are preserved in the final product to reflect the amount of work that’s gone into the design. The organic shapes are reminiscent of seedpods and can be used for a variation of purposes, such as a vase, fruit bowl and champagne bucket.
Whilst pitting and welds will be controlled with set tolerances, they will never be completely invisible. These are the unique marks of the skilled hand makers and are a celebration of the craft.
All of the products are significant in size, and the vessels are water tight so can be used for floral arrangements, and are also dry-food safe.
