These beautiful Eroded Bowls (from £750) by metal artist and silversmith Claire Malet are made from discarded metal cans. Inspired by erosion and decay in the natural world, each piece is heated and reformed before being cut by hand tools and gilded with gold leaf. It is a time-consuming process – a medium Eroded Vessel takes about 25 hours to make – but by the time Malet is done, the only sign of the bowl’s humble origin (Heinz Beanz tins are among her favourite source materials) is the seam around the bottom.
