Floating Frames Mantel Clock, Copper
Kiki van Eijk designed floating frames as a collection of handmade objects in anodized aluminium wire. Each piece is meticulously handmade in her workshop; no two items are alike.
Showing only the skeleton of the object yet representing a function in full state, these metal wire pieces seem to float in space. Kiki takes a single line and transforms it into a whimsical sculptural piece. By interweaving a ceramic part she highlights its function.
Finish: Copper wire, ceramics
Also available in oxidized copper.
