Adi Toch sensitively explores the vessel form through her expert material of metal. She begins with a flat sheet and fabricates delicate hollow objects using a variety of tools and hammers, and finishes her pieces through a labour-intensive process of hand texturing and patination. For this new series entitled Shrouded, Adi envelopes each vessel in a piece of cloth saturated in a plant-based solution for a prolonged period; the unadorned brass metamorphosises into an abstract and alluring surface indicative of its making and time. The surfaces of these pieces invites us to contemplate and immerse ourselves in the captured environment contained in the object.
