With the ‘No screw no glue’ pendulum XL, Joost van Bleiswijk proves that he is in full control of his ‘No screw no glue’ technique. The complete control of this technique, leads to excesses in shape and allows Joost to honour more detailed, ornamental objects, such as the classical pendulum.
Within the apparently natural evolution and complexity of the ‘No screw no glue’ technique, Joost strives for depth and finds ways to create personal conclusions of classical objects. The pendulum, once designed as a functional, but mostly ornamental object, has proven to be a grateful subject.
The ‘No screw no glue’ pendulum XL contains approximately 300 hand polished, separate elements.
