Set of 2 Cups by Craig Barrow

$63.52per set


Set of 2 cups by Craig Barrow Dimensions: 6 x 5 x 5.5cm Volume approximate: 50ml Materials: Slip cast porcelain shot cups, Internally glazed Variations: Black porcelain, black glaze. Black porcelain, nebular glaze. White porcelain, white glaze. White porcelain, nebular glaze. A set of porcelain carafe and shot cups concerted over numerous visits to the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. Gotland has a rich abundance of sedimentary rocks that were deposited some 440 million years ago during the Silurian age when a warm, shallow, salty ocean covered the area. These rocks now stand as unique and unusual ancient rock Formations that scatter across the island’s land and shores. Not only producing a dramatic visual landscape, the rock is used extensively in the island’s building and infrastructure industry. The collection A Shallow and Salty Ocean is homage to the Gotland’s geographical and Industrial heritage. Moulds were taken from select fragments of limestone and cast in fine porcelain resulting in an ongoing series of vessels. The intricate stone texture and sharp, aggressive crystalline structure makes drinking with these pieces a unique experience, being as much functional as they are sculptural. The monotone unglazed exterior juxtaposes the gloss, colorful interior glaze, reminiscent of a shining mineral found within a broken rock. From the ancient ocean waters that first laid the rocky deposits, the roles of these two elements have been transformed through this collection; the ocean that was once a vessel for rock, the rock has now become a vessel for liquid. Craig Barrow is an artist and designer working in the areas of object and sculpture. Seeing design as responses to the world’s curiosities and shared relationships, his body of work stems from material exploration and production processes, observations of human interaction with objects and scientific and natural phenomena. Born in Nottingham, UK, currently based in Berlin.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
