Numeral concrete

'Numeral' house numbers (2013), cast concrete, stainless steel back plate.

A playful and somewhat irreverent approach has been taken to the utilitarian role of numbers as functional signifiers. Distorted and allowed the specific qualities of materiality to play a role in their visual form, the 3D numbers in cast concrete explore a stylised architectural aesthetic commensurate with the material’s strength.
