Spawn of the Apes Sculpture Glass vs. Plastic Collection

$9,832

About

A collaboration between Studio Orfeo Quagliata and Tony Wurman of Wunderwurks Design. An unprecedented marriage of Orfeo's spectacular glass work, an obsessive process created by boiling high quality recycled crystal with color to create vibrant wispy blocks, then handcut, ground and polished to create the final components. Together with Wurman's one-of-a-kind polymer sculptures; resulting in art and alchemy. Wurman utilizes a blend of EVA hot-melt adhesive and though his proprietary techniques, transforms this common Industrial material into a unique medium of extreme clarity, color and dynamic beauty, with the flexibility of rubber, look of glass and durability of plastic. Each stunning artwork is created by hand at the Wunderwurks Studio in NYC. EVA is Non-toxic. No waste is created during production - all unused material is 100% recycled. The pre made pieces are then shipped to Quagliata’s studio in Mexico City and bonded with the crystal parts to create the completed works. Each piece is then photographed and engraved, "Certificated of Authenticity" are made and the pieces are placed in handcrafted boxes that merit the stunning creations.
