Markus Haase, Ash and Onyx Light Sculpture, USA, 2016

Markus Haase’s unique, hand-sculpted onyx and bleached ash sconce features an asymmetrical “butterfly” form that extends elegantly into space. Even while unlit, the pice retains a luminescent quality as a wall-mounted sculpture.  Its luster and smooth finish renders the piece to appear sealed in its raw state. Powered by the most advanced LED technology, the sconce emits a perennial glow softly through the stone. 

Custom dimensionality, as well as other wood and stone options such as alabaster or marble, may be accommodated for a bespoke piece.

Haase’s background as a sculptor for over twenty-five years is evident by the sinuous, elegant sculptural forms inspired by nature and the body. Haase was formally educated and apprenticed as a stone sculptor in Germany. There, he developed his eye for organic form and his virtuosity with diverse materials.  By day Haase used his sculpting skills to restore centuries-old Gothic cathedrals, and by night he used the same skills to explore contemporary sculptural form.  Over the last decade, Haase has worked on the restoration of some of the most important cathedrals in Northern Germany, including St Johannis in Göttingenm, St. Michaelis in Hildesheim, and Beate Mariae Virginis in Wolfenbüttel. These experiences have led him to become one of the most accomplished sculptors working in stone today.
