Anchor is a stool obtained from a section of Venetian pole. A transparent, glass-like resin incorporates and protects the preciously jagged edge carved by the lagoon shipworm.
Venice foundations consist of thousands of timber poles, driven into the lagoon till they reach the ‘caranto’ layer (a mixture of solid clay and sand situated at great depths). Being surrounded by salty mud, the wood has practically turned to stone. In spite of everything, Venice is still fighting against the muddy ground and the ever increasing water level. Anchor is a tribute to this millennial struggle, to the memory of these epic underwater atlases.
