About

*materials; Sterling Silver Leaf on Paulownia with Bubinga Facets This series by Chloe Hedden and Bill Hedden explores the growth forms of the mineral pyrite.  Pyrite or 'fools gold' grows in organic ever expanding interconnected cubes. This father daughter duo creates free standing and wall sculptures out of the wood 'paulownia' inspired by Sarah Hedden's (Chloe's sister) dedication to Japanese Tea Ceremony.  Paulownia is the official wood of Sarah's school of tea and it has some very desirable attributes for sculpture, namely that it is lightweight, yet very fine grained so that it takes detail well.  It is also abundant and fast growing. The artists create hollow boxes out of wood and then carefully interconnect them in a complex and painstaking joinery process. Essentially, the sculptures grow in a way that mimics the natural crystals while bringing these tiny minerals into a larger than life scale. The final result is painted and finished in precious metal leaf: 18k Gold, 24k Gold, Sterling Silver, Rose Gold or Copper. For the viewer, this coating of metal creates beautiful effects with light as it is ever changing from all angles and reflects its surroundings. Especially interesting are the areas of amplified light where shadows glow.  Natural imperfections in the leaf create a Wabi Sabi effect. 'Show Facets' of the sculpture are also enhanced with exotic hardwoods or shell, many of which have been in the artist’s possession for decades. The final result is geometric while still feeling organic, opulent but earthy. A certificate of authenticity is included. About artist: Born in Utah (USA), Chloe Hedden looks for the unseen patterns and hidden narratives that reveal the magnificence in all things. ​According to the artist, there is a still point in every moment and to capture this essential luminescence is what she aims for in her practice. Chloe makes use of archetypes from the cultural and mystical history to inform her work. It is through this inspiration that she created her latest body of work comprised of intricately folded Burlap wall sculptures. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002, Chloe's paintings and sculptures can be found in numerous public and private collections.
