Escape

Being under the influence of exotic landscapes and the beauty of things found in nature, this is furniture as escapism. At first glance, you’re transported. Each piece is like a three-dimensional landscape painting inspired by trips to the American Southwest. In rich blues, creams, purples, and browns, the geometric forms are seamless gradients of tones

and textures. Layering hand-dyed granules of sand, coffee, powdered glass, and silica, the materials impart an ethereal quality. Silica, with its lava-like texture, composes the foreground. Sand, stratified with delicate veins, subtly changes in tone to suggest layers of earth and distant mountain ranges. Crystalline, almost translucent glass powder, constitutes otherworldly skies and bodies of water. The construction is poetic and timeless, inspiring fantasy and utility.
