Stick Vases by Shir Atar

View all 7 Photos

Following his graduation from H.I.T (Holon Institute of Technology) Israeli designer Shir Atar began explor­ing his intrigue of relations between indus­trial production & technology and hand craftsmanship & materials. Working alongside industrial manufactur­ers offers the opportunity to observe pro­cesses and work methods of both people and machinery. Reviewing existing conditions; rethinking the outcome – and recreating new objects that combine both worlds – industrial and personal.

The compound material of synthetic resin and natural dry branches used for the “Stick Vases” behaves much like a Modern Fossil.  The new body of material hides the natural flow of the branches, suspended in time, wrapped by the cast resin. After casting, the composite body is ready for the milling process that will ‘excavate’ and reveal the unique, individual, one of a kind pattern in each vase.

Davide

Davide was born and raised in the tiny Piemonte town of Biella, world-famous for its textiles and the hometown of Michaelangelo Pistoletto. A life-long passion for design and innovation led Davide to New York City, where he lives with his family. He created Gessato in 2006, and he's been pioneering new communication tools and techniques ever since.
