Produced between 2000-2004.

A related series of vessels with a flowing curvilinear formation based on the pouring action of liquid. The sharply modelled lines are created as a result of the overlap technique which is used to build up the body, section by section.

The overlap process involved is similar to clinker boat building practice - but in this application is reversed - the development progressing internally rather than on the external surface.

The surface detailing and textural quality of the finished designs evolve in a natural manner, directly from the process of construction.
