There is a weight and permanence to the full rounded volumes of this pair of sensuously glowing vessel forms. They exert a presence as each occupies and envelopes space. These forms have a sense of latent function, of ambiguity and mystery. Their poised balance, lightness of touch to the ground and their gestural, conversational nature lends these forms personality and attitude.
Delicately balanced, each is in a state of stable equilibrium, where the slightest touch will cause it to rock and spin, but only for a while - each will soon return to a state of balance, of equilibrium.
