The title Diptych refers to the juxtaposition within each postcard of geometric and organic
shapes, open and closed parts, control and freedom. The patterns are created by covering
parts of the objects with rubber stickers during the sandblasting process.

You can see the life of the tree in the wood: good summers give a wide annual ring, harsh
winters a thin one. By sandblasting you blow away the soft rings of summer, leaving a
wide gap. Within the wood there are different colours: heartwood has a reddish hue,
sap-wood is more yellow. To accentuate the wood markings, the objects are finished with
a combination of oil and wax.

Designer Lex Pott (1985) employs a raw and intuitive method. In his work, he returns to the
origin of the materials he uses most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs
under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence. He graduated cum laude in
2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
