The word ‘Cenote’ comes from the Mayan language. It refers to a natural, deep pool of water. Often believed to be an entrance to the spirit world, as well as a home for the Gods. Our task was to create a stool using Birch plywood. Beginning with a solid mass we focused on how to expose the unseen core of the object, and so reveal its inner beauty. Could we take an ordinary cube, and create a form of art? With its shifting colours and absence of light, the surfaces each with their distinct textures and light reflecting properties will as a result enhance and direct focus to the heart of the form.
The Cenote stool without doubt is an expression of Birch plywood art, exploring both colour and intimate spatial qualities that pay respect to such a spiritual place. This artistic representation gives us an experience of these inspiring natural places and also a journey into the deep, with reflections of light and colour to guide us. A spatial, visual and above all sensorial journey.
