Modern designs in resin metal paper textiles


By George...

I've been a big admirer of the artist, George Stoll, ever since I saw images of his beautiful installations.  He was born in 1954 and produced installations from everyday objects like sponges, Tupperware, toilet paper, and paper towels.  His pieces appear to be ordinary objects but upon closer inspection, they are actually carefully cast or sculpted objects.  I love his philosophy about "making something imperfect.  Something that has a human man-made quality".  I simply love the colors assembled en mass on the simple white background and shelves!!

(I can't remember where I got these photos of George Stoll's work from since I collected them over a period of time.  If you know, please feel free to email me and I will update this post to give appropriate credit or link to your website!)

Can you tell this was a big inspiration for my display at the New York International Gift Fair and Paris Maison & Objet exhibitions?!

 I really appreciate the handmade organic quality and imperfectness of the pieces.  I also love the pop of color against the plain white wall.  Enjoy!
