Function and emotion - object meets sculpture
The project was developed from a clay prototype modelled by Chia with his fingers and nails - a flat, round surface, enclosed by a sculpted edge decorated with outlined human faces, which constitute a typical element of his art. The edge is slightly raised to make it easier to grip the Tray. This exquisite object-cum-sculpture is a functional product with all the emotional value of a work of art. Fingernail’s work, produced through a cold moulding process, is made from 18/10 stainless steel with a polished finish.
