Volcanic Shade I

  • Description
    Through an abstracted geometric language – a ludic set of variations between squares and circles– these stools seek to establish a millenary connection with Earth itself. Serving as a visual metaphor for volcanoes that, through their craters, open faultlines into the Earth's core, they are made from square-shaped blocks of a variant of lava stone and circles carved out of different kinds of onyx. As those materials originate in a geological time scale, each piece is a time capsule compressing a temporal span alien to human understanding. While the base material is an actual product of volcanic activity, the color variants of the onyx –Talan Green and Aztec Red– bring to mind the intense viridian tonalities of volcanic crater lakes formed from eruptions, or the crimson lava rivers gently flowing adrift out of the summit. Furthermore, the stools double as a tribute to the Mexican territory and its volcanic belt region, home to active and dormant entities and several lakes of a shared origin.
