Markus Haase, Bleached Ash and Onyx Chandelier, USA, 2016
Inspired by nature and the human form, Haase’s custom chandelier is composed of hand-sculpted bleached ash “branches” imbedded with hand-carved white onyx that encase dimmable LEDs. Suspended upon a diamond-form satin-finish brass center structure, the arms lend a warm, perennial glow as the LEDs emit softly through the stone. Even when unlit, the unique light sculpture retains its luminescent quality.
Haase’s twenty-five years experience as a sculptor are evident in the refined sculptural craftsmanship of his unique light sculpture, as he applies the same mastery and attention to detail employed in his conservation projects of Europe’s most revered cathedrals. Gaining critical attention from designers and collectors today, the artist’s work is currently being commissioned worldwide and exhibited at art fairs internationally.
Seamlessly combining stone and wood in fluid compositions, Haase can create custom pieces of lighting and art-furniture with bespoke sizes and from a variety of woods including walnut and ash and stones such as alabaster or marble.
