Modular Concrete Sculpture and Number Stands |
It was requested to create a 10cm cube similar base for large metal numbers. However a simple cube was too bulky for the elegantly curved numbers and furthermore far to heavy as 10 had to find their way from London to the US.
As this was for one event only it was more or less a question of honor to make them so beautiful and fitting to each other that when afterwards placed together different geometric sculptures could be displayed.
‘The Renwick: Spirit of Old New York
What was once home to working artist studios and inspired lofts has become one of Manhattan's most unique and visually compelling Midtown East hotels. The historic building that holds The Renwick has served as a stomping ground for a passionate crowd of authors and intellectuals, including John Steinbeck, Thomas Mann, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today, we're serving another passionate crowd: travelers like you.
..... Residential-style suites are fashioned as stylish creative enclaves with easels and paint, writing paper and ink, inspired artwork and books, as well as upscale amenities to make our
guests feel both comfortable and creative.’ [quote from therenwickhotelnewyork.com]
Mini Concrete Diamonds in a wide mix of grey shades
These have been made with extra small silver loops
so that they can be attached to Escort Card for the wedding.
guests could take the loops out with a straight pull.
The hole left behind looks like a minor imperfection and the small diamond made a lovely gift and reminder of the day to display at home.
Concrete Diamonds XXL
They are now happily featured in an American modern home.
The request was not just make them large [the almost tiny looking concrete diamond among those paper models is the large size of the design in the shop] but also to make them fairly light so that they could be easily moved around the house and to offer as many
display options as possible.
By inserting a light core and using a light reinforcement option I have been able to get the weight of for example the largest one down from about 8kg to around 5kg. A bit of testing has been involved which you can watch here if you like.
It was an exciting and experimental request to have copper T bars combined with elegant yet simply shaped concrete.
First Step: Open design drafts
Second Step: finding the right size and testing the combination of materials as well as finishes
Custom jewellery displays | it was more a collaboration than just a custom design as the copper T bars are made by @charlotteparkhilljewellery herself || this is what happens when artists meet | so will stop playing with them now and let them dry a bit more before shipping
