Description

All the sculptures Tom von Kaenel makes are unique, handcrafted. The stones all come from the surrounding marble quarries of the island. The Naxian marble is of white, grey, or yellow-brown colour, its structure is crystalline. No measuring instruments other than compasses and scales are used in the production of an object. The eye decides on the final shape. This small deviation in symmetry gives the form its individual tension.

The sculptures are kept raw, the surfaces are deliberately not polished so that the traces of the craft are visible. The crystalline surfaces are shimmering, giving the object a unique liveliness.

100% natural stone not sealed, not protected against acid. Beautiful imperfect!

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
