Marc Fish’s Copper One Piece Console is the latest creation in the artist’s unique One Piece series, wherein the artist explores the positive and negative space that a single piece of wood can occupy. Evocative of human forms, the console showcases Fish’s incredible mastery of today’s most refined practices in micro stack-lamination, which implement cold carving rather than heat. The table is made from nearly 100 pieces of oak timber, manipulated into shape, hand-carved, and sand blasted to bring out a highly textured grain. Resin and copper are used to create the exquisite metallic surface that follows the console’s curves. At once unique sculpture and functional console with a 16″ deep shelf, the sinuous and delicate object embodies a seemingly organic form while revealing the artist’s hand at work.
