I have made these columns as objects, similar to Morandi’s bottles that, despite being always the same, which we look at every day, each time appear different. A slight entasis or a minimum variation in the proportion between shaft and capital, between plinth and protrusion, is sufficient to change everything. Everything appears to assume a new and different proportion.
The columns are in walnut with the end grain always visible. They are not made from solid wood, but constructed by assembling slices of varying dimensions, their fibres oriented toward the centre.
