The new cup was crafted by Des A Byrne of Kilkenny Handwrought
Silver and was made by hand using 6.5 kilos of silver and took five months to complete.
While apparent seriality implies speed, the extremely subtle, handwrought
differences that occur from panel to panel check this initial impression and induce slowness.
On another night, I found a handwrought
sterling silver key ring.
Though for Heidegger "modem" art ends with van Gogh (and always fixates on the handwrought
), Sasse's state-of-the-art technique reveals a rather traditional, even classical aesthetic: one based on the notion that art is not a creation ex nihilo but always already a kind of prosthesis.
