Ceramic Shards in Organic Forms
Created from thousands of porcelain shards, the complex sculptures of Israeli artist Zemer Peled realistically resemble marine flora that looks as if it’s about to move to the sea’s undercurrents.
The sculptures deal with the beauty of nature from far away and also its harshness from up close. As far as the process goes, the artist creates sheets of clay which she later fires and hammers into pieces for her assemblages.

Inspired by the modernist sculptor Ruth Duckworth.

1960s American Studio Rope Chair, Unknown Designer
Wanting to include some vintage pieces in the group, I came across this fantastic chair in a google search on vintage chairs that incorporated hand weaving techniques. It has the weighty feel of a loom and almost looks like some sort of weaving device. I had to include it. I’d love to know who the designer was….
The Alvi Silk Chair by Swedish designer Asa Karner of Alvi Design. Karner is interested in creating an environmentally friendly range of furniture by incorporating colorful silk threads crossed with the oak frame. It’s a beautiful balance between transparency and mass. Light and shadow add another dimension to this piece as well.
