Marc Fish, Laminaria Chaise, UK, 2016
Marc Fish’s handmade, unique sculptural chaise lounge is hand-carved from American Black Walnut veneer. This work showcases Fish’s incredible mastery of the most refined practices in micro stack-lamination today, implementing no heat but only cold carving techniques. Manipulated into sinuous layered shapes, the wood has been hand-carved, sanded, polished, and finished with oil and wax. Following Fish’s Laminaria Console and Library Steps, this piece furthers the artist’s exploration of twisted seaweed forms, as its title Laminaria, a genus of seaweed, suggests. At once unique sculpture and functional object, the sinuous and delicate object reveals the artist’s hand at work, while exuding a seemingly organic, unprecedented form.
As Marc Fish works on a commission basis, custom dimensionality as well as finishes may be accommodated for a bespoke, hand-carved piece.
