    Rowan Mersh (b.1982), Dreamcatcher VII, 2020
    Ø.150 x D.0.8 cm
    Sliced Turritella Shells, Fluorocarbon
    Unique
    Price: £65,000 (plus any applicable taxes)


    With a degree in Textiles from the Royal College of Art, Mersh experiments with form by exploring and celebrating the natural qualities of materials that he uses for the creation of extraordinary works. His hard, sculptural, shell pieces are famous for their fluidity and soft-like aesthetic that he creates by painstakingly hand assembling each shell into mesmerising patterns.


    Mersh's sculptures have been acquired by major private and public collections worldwide, most notably the Victoria & Albert Museum, Jerwood and The Crafts Council collections. His commissions and special projects include works for the Mercury Music Prize, Fendi and Veuve Clicquot. His Asabikeshiinh (Dreamcatcher) was awarded the Moët Hennessy Prize as Best Contemporary Design at PAD London 2016.

  • Glithero, Rendez Vous, 2019. Gallery FUMI
  •  

    Glithero (b.1981 and 1982), Rendez Vous, 2019
    H.85 x W.130 x D.50 cm
    Bronze, Gum Paper, Wood
    UK
    Unique
    Price: £20,000 (plus any applicable taxes)

     

    Glithero is the London design partnership of Tim Simpson and Sarah van Gameren, who met as students at the Royal College of Art. Their work responds to the very human desire to understand how things are made, capturing the very moment of creation, in which material meets process and becomes product. In "Les French", their most iconic body of work, the designers turn unlikely, ad-hoc bamboo structures into solid bronze, paying homage to the aesthetics of the prototype and capturing the spontaneity of the artist during the creative process.

     

    Crossing the line between art and design, Glithero's work is sought after by collectors and interior designers and has been featured in museum exhibitions, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and The Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts in Lausanne, Switzerland.

  • Max Lamb, Urushi Cabinet, 2019. Gallery FUMI
  •  

    Max Lamb (b.1980), Urushi Cabinet, 2019

    H.52 x W.150 x D.47 cm
    Cypress Wood, Wajima-nuri Urushi Lacquer

    Japan

    Unique

    Price: £52,000 (plus any applicable taxes)

     

    Graduate from the Royal College of Art, Max Lamb's work appears to be made with very simple and direct actions: cutting, carving, sand casting, moulding, folding. The process however, is often labour-intensive and deeply entwined with the materials used. His highly successful "Urushi" series started in 2010 when he began collaborating with the community of craftspeople in Wajima, Japan; developing his own approach to the traditional Wajima-nuri lacquering process, Lamb celebrates the nature of the wood by keeping its grains exposed under the many layers of lacquer.

     

    Max Lamb works are collected by numerous public institutions around the world, including the Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York, the Design Museum Gent in Belgium, The Design Museum in London and SFMOMA in San Francisco. In 2018 he had a solo show “Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating” at the Art Institute of Chicago.
