Drift by Tom Fereday Design

Drift by Sydney-based designer Tom Fereday presents a dramatic series unique cast quartz glass forms, exploring the notion of natural passive finishing.
Harnessing the unique finishing agent of tidal water for a collection of glass objects, Drift presents a naïve exploration into natural, non-powered processes promoting a conversation of how we may better work symbiotically with nature.

Each of the objects are patinated and uniquely finished by the tidal drift of the Tasman Sea. Natural abrasion of the ocean water and silica celebrates the beauty and unique variation of the natural finishing process.

This project has been longlisted in the homeware design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
