By mixing the handmade with industrial, designer Julian F. Bond created a series of vases and lighting for an exhibition entitled Pixel Vases Landscape. The vases are made the traditional slip casting way but Bond steps in to manipulate each piece making each an individual design and not part of a mass production. Each vase is made via the Pixel Casting Machine that molds the piece when you manually adjust hundreds of 1-2 cm plaster sticks.
The objects have an architectural quality about them and appear at first glance to be made from sugar cubes.
The exhibition is on display at SWING Gallery in Benevento, Italy through September 15th, 2012.
