Vessels of Imperfection

six objects / each piece is different: aluminium casted in Vienna / aluminium

Vessels of Imperfection is a collection of aluminium casted vessels, that embrace the imperfections occurring during the process of metal casting. Instead of removing seams and flaws of the casted object, they are highlighted and used as a focal point of the objects.

ARTISAN: Martin Petermann is a metal-casting craftsman in Vienna. He works with sand casting and lost wax casting techniques and can already look back on over 30 years of professional experience.

DESIGNER: Anna Zimmerman is working in the fields of object design, spatial design and concept development. Anna’s work is versatile, multidisciplinary, and inspired by everyday life and there is often a layer of social controversy beneath it. With a conceptual approach, her fascination for material, surfaces and contemporary aesthetics is key in her practice.

BUSINESS: Rheija Hug studied business and marketing management. Working in a circular economy startup, she has experience in product development and product launch.
