In an exploration to develop new, innovative techniques for combining resin with his signature wood laminations, Fish created a revolutionary material that allows light to pass through frosted resin in varying levels of light and dark. Reflected off of the paper-thin wood veneers the light takes on different shades, manipulated by the fluctuating spaces between the laminations. The effect is that of a constantly shifting, illuminated surface.
Ever inspired by elements of the natural world, Fish’s Ethereal Series mimics the delicacy of leaf structures with their complicated system of midribs and veins. The edges of these remarkable pieces are irregular and curl upwards as in the leaves of certain succulent plants.
