FACETURE homeware09. Feb2012
London-based designer Phil Cuttance creates Faceture vases using a low-tech mobile workshop created by himself. This is a demostration that handcrafts are not dead but in fact are as contemporary as ever.
The Facetures are 'cranked' shapes with crisp, faceted forms transformed in a series of housewares that consists in flower vases, pendant shades, and a table - for the moment.
"Each object is produced individually by casting a water-based resin into a simple handmade mould. The mould is then manually manipulated to create the each object's form before each casting, making every piece utterly unique." - Phil Cuttance
Standard colors are charcoal, blue, yellow, pink, and white but custom colors are also available.
The amazing process from making the mold to the final creation of the houseware item can be seen in the demonstrative film on Phill Cuttance site.
