Permeable Spaces / Earle Accent Table, 2018

EXHIBITION LOCATION

Drawing Room

MEDIUM

Walnut and Reclaimed Aluminum

TECHNOLOGY

Digital illustration software, advanced materials (hydrophilic polymer beads)

SIZE

30 x 14 x 18 in

PRICE

$8,000

DESCRIPTION

The accent table in walnut and aluminum is a testament to Earle's curiosity about the way materials can unite in unusual ways to create beauty and function. This piece answers the questions, “Can I cast metal tenons directly into wood mortises? Can I employ advanced materials in traditional casting methods to give the metal visual interest and lightness?" In the foundry she learned to read the surface and form of each iteration to learn the way the metal flowed in the mold, so she could adjust its shape and casting process until I got the desired result.

Gabo Chair, 2017

EXHIBITION LOCATION

Library

MEDIUM

Steel

TECHNOLOGY

CAD software, 3-axis CNC, laser

SIZE

38 x 53 x 38 in

PRICE

$6,000

DESCRIPTION

Browsing in an antique book shop, Earle saw a faded image of a Naum Gabo sphere study in clear plastic. She instantly understood the form, and wanted to explore and redefine it to produce a functional chair that would sculpturally convey a sense of spiritual ascent in its expression of space, time and movement.

Torus Felt Ottomans, 2018

EXHIBITION LOCATION

Library

MEDIUM

Wool felt

TECHNOLOGY

Digital illustration software, CNC cutting

SIZE

22 x 22 x 11 in

PRICE

$4,000

DESCRIPTION

Earle is interested in reimagining upholstery cushioning, and developing earth friendly alternatives to the open cell foam commonly used in mass-produced furniture and mattresses. As an avenue of exploration, she used a waffle weave structure fabricated in wool felt to build a volume. She was looking to employ sustainable natural fiber without dyes, and leverage the geometry of the study as both beautiful and structural.
