Marc Fish, Ethereal Series Seed Pod Sculpture, UK, 2019

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.

Marc Fish’s Ethereal Series, was born out of an exploration to develop new, innovative techniques for combining resin with his signature wood laminations, Fish has created a revolutionary material that allows light to pass through poured and carved resin. Reflecting off of the paper-thin wood veneers, the light takes on different shades, manipulated by the fluctuating spaces between the laminations. The effect is that of a constantly shifting, illuminated surface quality.

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 dramatic sculptural Ethereal Series is a testament to the maker’s ingenuity and imagination.

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.”
