Why Shape Lab exists
I have created Shape Lab to give curators and clients a snapshot of the sculptural shapes I create as well as some of the finishes and trims. This is not the limit to what I can do and I am happy to always try to execute a client's vision. What you see above is the surface of a 4 foot by four foot panel with nearly 600 unglazed Australian porcelain blossoms attached.
These are examples of a more realistic porcelain florals I have created. The roses are the most challenging as each petal must be created first and then each is attached to a tiny porcelain stem that holds the blossom.
Summer Tides Series
This opalescence glaze became the theme for a series of sculptures interior designer Manuel De Santaren requested for a client. I created different shapes and sizes that were to become a unique pattern across a large dining room table. Fresh flowers would eventually float in each.
This is a limited series of high-gloss, reflective gold-edged, small sculptures I created for a Charleston gallery and a Boston-based interior designer. The shapes are organic and with the gold trim, a bit more formal in their presentation.
Here are examples of porcelain sea waves, plants and barnacles. The gold-trimmed, matte finish barnacles (left) became part of a very large, 70-plus piece wall sculpture for a Chicago hotel seafood restaurant. Top left is a sink that created and is meant to sit on a pedestal.
