$449.58

About

Sea candelabra by Jan Ernst Dimensions: W 15 x D 8 x H 20 cm Materials: Terracotta, stoneware, black clay Glazed to client specification. Other dimensions available, please contact us. The work is influenced by his fascination with natural structures such as corals, fungi, and geological formations. The designs have evolved into functional art and sculptural furniture expressed mainly through ceramics and gypsum. Jan Ernst’s work takes on an experimental approach, as he prefers making bespoke pieces by hand. His organic design stems from his abstract understanding of form and space and deep connection with the natural world. Jan Ernst is a multidisciplinary creative based in Cape Town, who specializes in functional art and collectible design. He holds a degree in Architecture and moved to Spain, completing his master’s degree. After 4 years of working in corporatearchitecture, he co-founded Studio AN, a creative platform for architecture and interior design. He aims to create conversation driven by organic forms and awkward negative spaces in the pieces while bringing people together with the narrative quality of the work.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
