Marc Fish, Vortex Table, UK, 2018

Marc Fish’s unique Vortex Table is constructed from over 2000 hand-cut oak and sycamore veneers, carbon fiber, and nearly 300 pounds of poured resin.  The poured resin top is hand carved, sanded and highly polished until crystal clear, in a swirling, centrifugal direction, mimicking the twisted form of the table’s base.  Expanding on his reputation for logic defying works, The Vortex Table is at once a functional object and an sculptural anomaly.  Fish was inspired by the dynamic energy of vortexes whether they are descending into whirl pool or ascending in a tornado. The Vortex Table captures this energy and becomes a physical representation of this natural phenomena.  The hand-carved table top also gives the impression of the patterns that the ocean creates on a sandy beach when the tide goes out. The carved resin underside distorts the look of the sycamore veneer making it appear undulating like sand dunes.

Fish constantly strives to transcend the barriers of art, design, sculpture, and furniture. His sublimely unique works possess a timelessness that could be found seamlessly in the most contemporary of settings to the most traditional.  Exploring the Victorian obsession with natural history, these one-of-a-kind pieces are created through Fish’s incredible mastery of the most refined practices in micro stack-lamination today. While the curvilinear forms of Fish’s works harken back to Art Nouveau, his process pushes the limits of 21st century furniture design.
