#TOKEN is a polished small coin-like disk (though not always smooth), a piece of copper or brass, with different textures on the reverse and obverse. The surface of "TOKEN" is in many cases the result of randomness. Not so obvious use ... holding it in your hand, manipulating and changing its position in your hand helps reduce stress and allows you to take care of something in your hand in demanding situations.
My name is Paweł and I live in Poznań. I have always been fascinated with constructing, designing and creating various (needed or less needed) things, so I am glad that I can both professionally and as a hobby fulfill my youthful fascinations, at work: as a creative constructor and for two years now as a hobby: FORMA/FORM, creating objects from copper and brass. This second activity gives me a strong sense of fulfillment (because I can!). I dream that in a few years' time passion will turn into a main professional activity, as a designer and a manufacturer of classic "things to have".
My main interest is the form, simple but with a hidden "taste". The first two batches of product were hand-made from scratch. Nowadays, after cutting with water, I try to finish the raw shapes individually so that each item is unique. Patina for openers and stones "to have" I choose randomly, and their quantity I assume in advance for a given month and possibly alter them afterwards.
I try to make every opener or object that I create meet the aesthetic and functional requirements. My products undergo a strict evaluation and I make sure that they fit the convection, thanks to which they acquire a unique character, and at the same time are fully usable for the possibilities of their FORMS and materials used.
As a result of the patination process, the colour of copper and brass changes over time.
