A fine cut seems to divide in two this bowl of solid walnut with a pulverised bronze finish, at the same time allowing it to contain dry objects inside. The crevice reminds us of the gesture of a knife, halving a watermelon; the thickness is therefore kept to a minimum. Metaphorically, it is like our desire to be cut free from a world of constant fluidity; or better still, from a fluid culture.
The choice of a spherical form, maternal and timeless, gives the bowl its simplicity. But the shape is not to be taken for granted, or considered trivial or predictable. Rather, the cut makes it extremely elegant, stimulating our visual sensibilities, even when we see it as an empty form.
