De Natura Fossilium




Utilising a material not often thought about for anything other than what it is – cooled lava. This is a magnificent collection of furnitures and objects, using basalt, an igneous rock that forms when basaltic lava cools quickly, that came about from the debris left behind on November 20, 2013 when Mount Etna erupted in Sicily. 


The result of the event left the area covered in black earthen material which they carved out into geometric volumes. The volumes were then paired with brass elements to make stools, tables and other objects in a series they call De Natura Fossilium.
