Green marble is the main feature of artist Tom Dixon’s latest work.
Tom Dixon has created a collection of candle holders and serving plates. All are crafted from Rainforest green marble sourced from India, called ‘Rock’. The marble has a deep green base with stretching and sprawling brown veins.
The studio describes the items as “a collection of interactive, playful and stackable sculptures, which act as architecture for your dining table.”
It includes two different sizes of stackable candleholders, three different shaped chopping boards and platters with grooved surfaces.
Dixon’s many trips to India inspired the work. It was where he observed the hand lathe workers of Rajasthan and Agra.
Marble is a natural stone, so each piece is totally unique. Because of the stones uniqueness, the pattern and texture of each piece in Dixon’s work is entirely one off.
Dixon has worked with Rainforest Green marble on numerous occasions in the past with the studio describing his relationship with the material as a “love affair”.
