Ever inspired by elements of the natural world, Marc Fish’s Ethereal Series mimics the delicacy of leaf structures with their complicated system of midribs and veins. The structure of the consoles have a ribbon-like delicacy that betrays their structural integrity. Fish’s dramatic sculptural Ethereal Series is a testament to the maker’s ingenuity and imagination.
The fascinating eliptical Ethereal Drinks Cabinet is confounding for both its construction and its strong sense of aliveness. Visually it makes vague suggestions of any number of natural elements; a seed pod, flowing water, topogrophy, or quite literally stratum, the layers of rock that form the earth. Fish’s dynamic contradiciton of taking rigid materials (wood, metal, resin) and making them appear to float effortlessly is prevalent throughout his Ethereal Series. It is easy to forget that this is not just a beautiful harmonious object. The cabinet doors gently separate, reveallying six formed shelves to hold glasses, bottles, and bareware.
