Chris Wolston explores different cultures of materiality through combining a mode of production that is left over from a time and place where small scale manufacture was the norm, with the high-tech modern materials that embody the mass-produced world. The sand casting of aluminum in Colombia is one of the most common modes of production in small-scale manufacture. Every day domestic objects, such as pans, cups, and kitchen tools are all produced using this process. The aluminum foam sheeting, which is the material inspiration for this collection, is normally found in architectural sound proofing, and has an incredibly complex manufacturing process.
This cube stool with its mirror polished finish is an evolution from the artist's earlier Los Huesos stool collection, where the stools were left with an unfinished exterior.
