Browsing through 1st Dibs like a crazy person, in usual order. My cravings are these at the moment; Mid-Century smoked art glass bowl by Holmegaard, abstract etching on paper by Jiri Kolar, Italian Mid-Century Chandelier (from 1960s), daybed from the 1950s by Kurt Thut, brass and agate lamp from 1970s, and Swedish rya rug in yellow, white and black.
“The Windfall series is made from applewood burls collected from apple orchards in Prince Edward County. Dark stripped off the bark and allowed the dense burls to dry out, he then filled in the cracks and smoothed them out. When finished he was reminded of the Japanese art Kintsugi. The philosophy that treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than disguising the repair.The forms are soft to the touch – sensuous lines reminiscent of Henry Moore.”
Shayne Dark sculpture from Windfall series No. 2 2015.
