Geoffrey Gorman

p p " When I am making objects, I think of model airplanes made of balsa wood, then covered in thin transparent paper. Or I see decoys and shapes made to attract wild animals. I visited a museum in Alaska that had drawers filled with toys that had been put together, used and collected from previous cultures. I also think of a forest of tall, dark trees covered in moss and moisture, a silent, meditative place. " - Geoffrey Gorman p

Stone and Industry by Lex Pott

From Lex Pott: As Belgian bluestone is found deep under the ground, natural rugged forms are typically created during its extraction. Industry then processes this into rectangular blocks or sheet material. Lex Pott designed a table that combines industry and nature.

Duane Hanson

p p p Since the early 1970's Duane Hanson has been making startlingly lifelike sculptures of middle America accomplished through a complex process of casting from live models, recreated in bronze or fibreglass resin. Duane Hanson concentrated on the naked fact of the subject, an astonishingly persuasive counterfeit of another human being as a fully realised physical presence. When describing this sculpture Duane Hanson said: " I like the physical burdens this woman carries. She is weighted down by all of her shopping bags and purchases, and she has become almost a bag herself. She carries physical burdens, the burdens of life, of everyday living. But initially, it's quite a funny sculptures. " p
