Marcus Steel

In 2006 I created a set of three vessels that I have always referred to as my genesis pieces as they have significantly influenced the direction and content of my practice to date, reflecting a long held interest in architecture both historical and modern, industrial and vernacular that has continued through into this new series of vessels and timepieces. 

The pieces are complex in structure but simple and uncluttered in form and appearance, all constructed from sheet metal, formed and finished with chemical patinas that give an intensity, richness and depth to the surfaces that suggest a sense of age and history and accented with discreet silver detailing that make each piece individual and unique. Vessels that hint at function, that are tactile and inviting, contemplative pieces, vessels that need to be handled.
