Marc Fish’s bar-cabinet Babel is a unique work of art that asserts Marc Fish as one of today’s most talented artists working with wood. Fish has developed a propriety technique whereby he carves sycamore to create a cocoon or shell-like structure. Babel opens to reveal a bronze-lined interior with textured glass shelves. The cabinet, like Marc’s other pieces Mollusque and Nautilus, was inspired by the intricate shapes in the structures of shells. Another interpretation of this piece may be a pea pod that opens to reveal its seeds.
Marc Fish has quickly achieved international acclaim. As Fish only creates a few select designs per year, his work is in high demand. The artist constantly strives to blur the traditional boundaries of furniture, art, design and sculpture, explaining, “It is not my intention to be allocated a particular style or to be described within a preconceived discipline. I want my work to transcend these barriers.” His pieces are not constructed using a rigid design process; rather, they are the result of an evolution of ideas in which an initial concept is explored through a process of innovation and experimentation.
