Vaxandi is a new craft, developed during a two-month research. Wax and water are simultaneously poured into a container; the water pulls the wax to the surface as well as cooling it continuously, creating layers of materials. By controlling the flows of water and wax separately the layered structure can be formed and manipulated into shape.
        The process is a low-tech translation of additive manufacturing or 3D printing. Partly controlled and partly dictated by the material flow, the shapes of Vaxandi vessels have an organic quality, resembling natural rock formations.
