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 two decades of experience as a sculptor are evident in his masterful treatment of materials, where smooth undulations of bleached ash appear as malleable as drapery as they curve in 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. Each piece has the distinct marks of the maker’s hand from his fluidly carved console tables to his celebrated light sculptures that mimic natural forms such as antlers or stalactites.
As the artist works on a commission basis, the piece may be custom ordered with bespoke dimensionality and materials.
“Markus Haase is not making a piece of furniture that looks like art. He is a sculptor making art that serves functional ends.” – Todd Merrill
