Marc Fish Mollusque Low-table – Todd Merrill
Marc Fish’s journey exploring the Victorian obsession with natural history continues with the organically inspired futuristic design of his unique Mollusque Low Table. Mollusque is an oversized representation of a displayed artifact that recalls a 19th century curiosity. With elements that mix ctional eras, Fish’s work becomes timeless. The artist’s work could be described as mixing the visual depth, richness, and romanticism of Dickensian London and the futurism of Jules Verne. The complex technique Fish developed for achieving a double compound curved solid wood item had only been used before in the design of his “Nautilus” shell tables. The combination of this unique technique and the copper internal surface adds a new dimension of visual richness.
Marc Fish has quickly achieved international acclaim. The limited nature of Fish’s works (only one new design is produced each year and all are made by hand), makes the work highly collectable. The artist constantly strives to blur the traditional boundaries of furniture, art, design and sculpture, explaining, “It is not my intention to be allocated a particular style or to be described within a preconceived discipline. I want my work to transcend these barriers.” His pieces are not constructed using a rigid design process; rather, they are the result of an evolution of ideas in which an initial concept is explored through a process of innovation and experimentation.
