Description Marc Fish’s hand-made, unique Relic Vessels are each created from 600 layers of wood veneer that have been laser cut and reassembled to form a shape evocative of an ancient vase. Best described as “contemporary relics”, the works both conceptually and aesthetically link the past and the present by deterioration and re-creation. Historically inspired by ancient pottery, they implement unprecedented sculpting techniques evocative of modern day technology, yielding a fresh and unprecedented aesthetic. Fish explains, “The vessels explore the notion of found, ancient objects being recreated with modern and traditional craftsmanship.”

Showcasing Fish’s incredible mastery of the most refined practices in micro stack-lamination today, the works are made with cold-carving and laser cutting technology, forgoing the traditional use of heat. Presented as a sculptural triptych the Relic Vessels have been rendered in ash, black ash and walnut, each lined with a silver glaze interior, offering a gleaming underbelly that smoothly contrasts the sharp, carved wooden body.
