FF Mirror 1

$4,000

About

Loosely inspired by sedimentary stone, a cast form seems to extend out from the wall only to be cleanly sliced and reveal a mirrored surface. Fully sculptural and fully functional. About the Future Fossils Collection Future Fossils is a collection of new works by Simon Johns, using mimicry in materials, loosely referencing the sedimentary striations in million years old stone. This collection explores positives and negatives of both extrusions and voids, in both gypsum cement and slip-cast stoneware. The traces of natural looking elements are preserved into mold-like volumes, structured into aluminum grids and more free-form geometries. The pieces are really furniture, but also seem like documents, celebrating the traces of something lost.

About the Maker

Simon Johns

Simon Johns is a Canadian fine arts-trained designer working out of the woods in southern Quebec. He approaches design with hands-on studio experiments closer to sculpture than to design. His work draws from relations between the manufactured product and the raw surroundings of the studio's wooded location. His work has been shown at Sight Unseen Offsite for NY Design Week in 2016 and 2017, at Wanted Design Manhattan 2016 and 2017, and at the Toronto Design Offsite (TODO) 2017 and 2018.
