  • featherbowl

    catch-all vessel

    method: laminated, CNC cut, hand finished

    dimensions: 16" x 3.5" x 3"

  • oculus

    pendant lamp

    These pendants originated in contrast to hyper-minimalistic styling trends in lighting. Meant to convey a sense of pod-like fleshiness when lit, the unlit state is boney and protective. The forms aim to entice curiosity while suggesting something in a private state of being. Mainly shedding up-light, the diffusers also cast a single curious ellipse from their oculus.


    materials: translucent porcelain

    method: slip cast

    dimensions: 11" x 8" (28 x 20 cm)

    phase: 9 units, working prototypes
