Hammered Bowls

Hammered Bowls are unique ceramic bowls created with a specially designed machine and hammer. The object grows within the machine with each strike of the hammer. Once the object has been shaped, it is fired in the oven. The growth rings that arise in the bowl are an imprint of the energy released on impact, so the object’s appearance is determined by the strength of its maker. This project is a collaboration between Piet Hein Eek and Studio Floris Wubben.
