Reception on Sat, June 22nd, 3 to 6pm; Exhibition runs June 22nd through August 31st
Fouladi Projects' Maker Program is pleased to present two window installations by Esque Studio, featuring the glasswork of Justin Parker and Andi Kovel, in collaboration with Travis Harvey.
Opening reception: Saturday, June 22nd, 3 to 6pm
Powered by 15 years of experience collaborating within their medium, Portland, Oregon based Esque Studio has established itself as a master visionary in glass design. Owners Andi and Justin have skillfully merged their vast talents to create uniquely modern objects inspired by both nature and function. Playing with scale, traditional shapes and contemporary tastes, the two have succeeded in pushing the boundaries of how glass can be used, all the while celebrating the inherent elemental beauty and translucent light embracing qualities of their material.
For this exhibition, Esque has created a body of glass artwork referencing the concept of "Modern Heirlooms". It is inspired by the notion that people desire to be in the company of nostalgic objects as they are then reminded of a simpler, more comforting past. On view will be colorful organically shaped vases, birdhouses, hand sculpted figurines, and objet d'art.
About the Maker Program:
As a compliment to our stable of contemporary fine artists, the Maker Program aims to cultivate and further expand our ever-evolving community of artists, collectors and art enthusiasts. Ranging from wood furniture, ceramics, glass, and beyond, the functional art and design objects are all imaginatively conceived and exquisitely crafted. Alternating within our regular program of fine art exhibitions, Fouladi Projects will introduce new Makers throughout the year.
