Large 41"tall STACKED Charred Wooden Vase by Richard Haining, Available Now

$8,500

About

Part of Richard Haining's STACKED Collection, this vase was made using Alaskan Cedar salvaged from a decommissioned NYC water tower. The wood's natural coloring is a pale light blond; although this vase is very dark in its appearance, there is no stain involved. The surface has been flamed. This charring process burns away a thin layer of the surface of the wood, which was then buffed to a polish, leaving it slightly recessed. Inversely, the seams/glue lines don't burn at the same rate as the wood surface, and remain slightly proud of the wood. The finished surface is a wonderful pairing of being both smooth and textured. The coloration reads dark brown to almost black in dim/low lighting. But, this finish has a chameleon quality; in brighter lighting, especially in direct sunlight, the colors warm dramatically to deep rich mahogany/cognac colors. Upon request, additonal “candid/studio” images can be made available. As with all of Richard’s STACKED work, the entirety of this piece was built, sculpted, and finished entirely by his hands. *Please note, the last two images are group shots showing scale. This listing only includes the vessel described and shown in the previous images.

About the Maker

Richard Haining

Richard Haining is a Brooklyn-based studio furniture maker and artist. Raised in Atlanta and educated at the Rhode Island School of Design, he is committed to responsible design that is elegantly hand-crafted with a modern sensibility. Blurring the line between function and fine art, Richard works with designers, trade professionals, and residential clients alike; custom tailoring each piece to suit each client’s specific needs. Whether creating a decorative vase, a custom cabinet, or executing a client's design, Richard’s meticulous attention to detail results in finished pieces that are both utilitarian and beautiful. Much of his current work is directly influenced by the over-abundance of waste and scrap wood being discarded around him. He finds beauty in the knots, century-old nail holes, mineral stains, and other “defects” that are part of that tree’s history, a fingerprint of time since passed, a natural beauty to be celebrated. These locally salvaged remnants became the building blocks for his ‘Stacked’ collection of decorative vessels and furniture pieces. The one of a kind patterns created by the tiny stacked wooden pieces achieve a quality reminiscent of mosaic tile work, basketry, and ceramics. In a world that tends to shun manual labor, Richard finds pure joy in the art of working with his hands. The ritual of creating each individual piece is a very gratifying experience for him, and it is his wish that the recipients of his work experience the same delight.
