Country Club

We were given some space at Country Club alongside the Aaron Morse exhibition, taking up a few walls with our shelved and hanging porcelain work. Christian Strike, let us borrow the Saarinen table on the right that he had refinished with bright orange automotive paint.
We hung our giant wolf chandelier above the table with the little Wolfie sconces on the back wall. The arrangement in this center space made for a fancy domestic showroom setting.
The Illuminated Manuscript style cups are intermingled with some sculptures throughout the space. These limited cups can also be found in detail with the iconoclast editions, just look for Future Retrieval. You will probably find more images on our other blogs. Katie & GMD

Hilarious photo of Mike today installing our work at Country Club. Two days until the opening, and we are almost ready. Will post pictures of the final installation and space - can't wait.

King of Beasts

This Lion is no coward and a nice addition to our collection of grotesque animal faces. This was 3-D scanned from a tiny piece of antique chalkware. We will be sending this file upstairs to the rapid prototyping lab for maximum build ASAP.

License to Illuminate

Finally finished with our latest edition, cups with hand painted and lustered patterns inspired by the illuminated manuscripts of Medieval hunting scenes. Our animals were drawn from taxidermy lessons of the old school and some of our own dabbles. These beastly boys are ill.

Carnivorous Cluster

hooray! Our chandelier is almost ready for installation. Gold grills and globe lights make for lovely finishing touches - now the only thing left is the chain. What to choose?
