K. Gretchen Greene’s Reef three-part sculptural table base of welded steel, bronze, lacquer, and plasma cutting techniques, recalls the organic forms and sinuous movements of water. Greene’s work is often a visual response and recollection of coast living and its fluctuations. Reef is at once a functional table base and hand-sculpted work of art to be seen through a diaphanous glass. The base parts can be assembled closer together or more widely spaced, able to loop through one another or be free standing; a glass top from 4 to 6 feet in diameter is suggested.
K. Gretchen Greene is a steel sculptor who works out of the Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville, MA. Educated at Yale, Princeton, Oxford, Greene began her career as an environmental and corporate lawyer.
