My quest was to create an art piece that pays homage to its function. Defying gravity, the wine barrel is tipped on its edge and cantilevered in space to recreate an image frozen in time juxtaposed against the idea of fluid movement.
From the layering of the patina to blend metal and wood, to contouring steel to the shape of the barrel, my vision is that the integration of materials accentuates the illusion of the piece. The LED backlight glass runway and bottle staging will impress your guests by putting a spotlight on your stemware. My love for design and engineering has come together in a balancing act of my purest artistry to-date. The bar has been raised.
