As Todd Merrill explains, “Markus Haase is not making a piece of furniture that looks like art. He is a sculptor making art that serves functional ends.” Markus Haase’s table, Aeolian, is inspired by ripples in windblown sand, epitomizing the sculptor’s distinct approach to fluidly melding stone and wood together. The artist’s decades of experience as a sculptor are evident in his masterful treatment of materials; bleached ash appears as malleable as drapery as it curves in smooth undulations of convex and concave forms beneath a hand-carved grey and white marble top.
Haase, who began his career doing historic restoration, embodies the independent artisan creating one-of-a-kind works without the aid of a studio of assistants or fabricators. From his fluidly carved console tables to his celebrated light sculptures that mimic natural forms like antlers and stalactites, each piece has the distinct marks of the maker’s hand.
As the artist works on a commission basis, this work may be ordered with custom dimensionality and materials.
