Designer David Taylor is back with a container series entitled The Brand New Heavies, where he uses rarely combined materials like tin and stoneware. The juxtaposition between the heavy, dark brown stone with the shiny, lightweight metallic qualities of the tin, somehow work and balance each other out.

As Taylor describes:

I make work that marries disharmonious materials, bringing them together in order to find, if not a balance, then a means of coexistence.

Each container was made in relation to the one made previously and throughout the day various sizes and shapes came about. The cast tin stoppers were slow-poured and made specifically for each container.
