Marc Fish, Ethereal Series Seed Pod Sculpture, UK, 2019
Mimicking the form of a winged seed pod, paper thin laminations create midribs and veins which enclose sections of frosted poured resin. As the spaces between the “ribs” fluctuate, light passes through at different shades from light to dark.This new light-retaining material’s effect is that of a constantly shifting, illuminated surface. Fish’s dramatic sculpture is a testament to the maker’s ingenuity and imagination.
Ever inspired by elements of the natural world, Fish’s Ethereal Series mimics the delicacy of leaf structures with their complicated system of midribs and veins. The structure of the consoles have a ribbon-like delicacy that betrays their structural integrity. Fish’s masterful composition of creates the illusion of sloping surface despite being perfectly level.
In an exploration to develop new, innovative techniques Fish has pushed the limits of twenty-first century furniture design. Renowned furniture maker John Makepeace states, “In the Ethereal Series, Marc Fish has raised his practical and material virtuosity to an extraordinary new level. The blend of materials in the surface is especially beguiling.”
As Fish only creates a few select designs per year, his work is in high demand. Custom designs and finishes may be requested.
