A fissure can open in a natural surface due to tension or compression or underlying stress. Fissures can be seen in rock surfaces or even in ice. In this basin the fissure adds movement across the top surface and brings an otherwise solid, stable material to life.
This bespoke fissure basin was designed with a contoured surface to allow for drainage across the piece
Inspired by geographical processes that showcase the intricacy of natural architecture the moulds for these basins can take hundreds of hours to fabricate.
