Nendo for Carpenters Workshop Gallery: Static Bubbles

Using a  non-traditional design material, Nendo crafts lighting and tabletop bowls. Particularly interesting is the family effect that we see in these grouped portrayals. What has a somewhat pedestrian feel as a material becomes ethereal when gathered amongst itself and enhanced with light; the bulb choice adds to the other-worldly appearance. As tabletop pieces, these lightweight vessels take on a precious sculptural feel; contents to be chosen wisely.

From Nendo: A collection of sculptural objects made by heat-forming agricultural nets ordinarily placed around fruit and vegetables to prevent them from harm by wind and animals. The nets are stronger than organdy but more flexible than wire mesh. Using them as a sculptural material allowed us to evade the traditional necessity of combining structure with a separate surface material, to create a thin membrane that stands independently, but also floats gently on a breeze.
