Victor Castanera’s Areniscos Tableware Made Out Of Sand

The Areniscos project is a perfect example of this methodology as Victor Castanera embarks on a process of shaping the sand by pouring water. This first steps allow the natural formation of the product’s shape and depth. Once the form is shaped, he makes sure to extract any residual corals, stones or anything that may damage and impact the mold to follow. Once the ecological acrylic resin is poured, it catalyzes with water and takes on the shape of the volume and begins to harden. The final step is a subtle and delicate excavation in order to separate the sand from the object. A simple process that creates an organic and somewhat improvised collection of plates, cups and trays that is light and beautiful in form. Areniscos demonstrates an integrated object that speaks to nature and to each one of us.
