Desert Impressions Bench no. 2

Desert Impressions Bench no. 2

Made in 2015, 17x60x22 in, cast concrete and Stainless Steel

These are the first experimental products of the Desert Design Lab project, which was supported by the John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship in 2014. The project traveled across the country for two months with an RV trailer (a mobile studio) spending extended time in remote desert landscapes/eco-systems to gather images and textures in developing my Desert Impressions work also inviting a handful of artist/designers/writers/craftsmen to collaborate with me in these locations. This bench was made by casting a cracked desert texture into a rubber mold and recasting it in concrete with stainless steel.
