Dry Earth Beaker

The Goldsmiths' Centre

£1,440.00 Sale price

Engraved, Chased and Punched Beaker
by Takuya Kamiyama

Dry Earth Beaker takes its inspiration from nature itself – the dry earth. Takuya raised the beaker to a height through hammering the original spun beaker into shape, then decorating the vessel with punches of different sizes and textures to create its mottled surface. The grooves that line the vessel are chased, so when caught in the light each texture conveys a different meaning.
