Pressure Vases

2017

Next to the pressure bench and stool, the same technique of pressing was applied on steel tubing. Using multiple self made molds and tools to guide the process. Under pressure the tube yields down into a folded shape. This makes the material look soft and emphasizes the plasticity of the metal. At the same time the folds hold a steel disc into place to make a watertight bottom. With this technique the vase and bottom are made in one movement.
