All the vessels 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, and 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 vessels 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!
