Materials have the power to affect human experiences and emotions by helping us build intimate connections with inanimate objects through touch and feel. Whether they are used as a point of reference or the medium of creation itself, they are integral to artists and designers who seek to explore fresh outcomes, experiment with new techniques, and elicit distinct responses from their audiences.
Material Matters 03: Stone showcases stunning creative interpretations of the common material across a variety of mediums. From polishing rocks to produce elegant packaging design to creating sculptural stationery, this edition explores the compelling ways with which the unique characteristics of stone can be cleverly drawn upon or manipulated to shape the outcome of a particular project.
