Columnar bowl

Are inspired by the columnar basalt in Jökulsárgljúfur, Vatnajökull National Park.
The items are made by the artist and contain Icelandic materials.
The material is collected outside of the nature reserve.

I think of stones like ceramics, in the beginning a blistering earthly material. Depending on the cooling process it will differ what kind of outcome you will get, like the forming of the columnar basalt; the material, the heat, the time and sometimes other unexpected influences like catastrophic flood.
