Markus Haase, Monumental Bleached Ash and Onyx Sconce, USA, 2014
Powered by the most advanced LED technology, Markus Haase’s unique, hand-sculpted bleached ash sconce emits a soft glow through onyx stone. Even when unlit, the sconce retains a luminescent quality. The sconce’s luster and smooth finish gives it the appearance of being sealed in its raw state. Custom dimensionality and materials, may be accommodated for a bespoke piece.
Haase’s skill as a sculptor for over two decades is evident in the work’s sinuous, elegant forms inspired by nature and the human body. Haase was formally educated and apprenticed as a stone sculptor in Germany. There, he developed his eye for organic forms and his virtuosity with diverse materials. By day, Haase used his sculpting skills to restore centuries-old Gothic cathedrals; by night, he employed the same skills to explore contemporary sculptural form.
12V D.C. is required for installation of the sconce.
