If you are looking for a special Christmas gift for this year, these round shaped vases might be a excellent find. Melbourne based Anna Varendorff is both a jeweller and a sculptor and founder of ACV Studio. As a jeweller she was acquiring metalworking skills which she now uses when forming, soldering and sanding her brass pieces. She says, when I am making jewellery or making my brass sculptural objects I get to form materials, and to problem solve. I am interested in the outcome of these objects meeting a body – whether this is when the object is being worn, or when it is being encountered within a gallery, or in the life of the object beyond the gallery.
My sculptural practice is concerned with creating opportunity for encounters between objects, space and observer, and perceptual outcomes of these combinations.- Anna Varendorff
