Copper Hand-Sculpted Side Table by Samuel Costantini

About

Copper hand-sculpted side table by Samuel Costantini Entirely handmade by the artist, each one is unique. Measures: Diameter 500mm, height 550 mm. Diameter 19.685, height 21.653 inches Cylindrical table with oxidized copper top and black burnished iron base. The base is made using scrap rods welded together and then heated by flame until the desired color shade is obtained. These are all manual processes. Made by hand on request. Time leaves its mark on everything. Its signs are different for each and every one of us, but always tangible. To the touch, an old trunk can bring back all manner of sensations. By closing our eyes we can try to imagine its long life and the events that have shaped it. The golden waves of this table have been created to give this very sensation. The ability to imagine the energy that has shaped this piece simply by touching it. The table is made entirely out of flame-worked brass, the legs are burnished and the top polished. The ability to create objects lies in the tradition in our hands. In ancient times, they were our only means of realising our thoughts. Artisan is the one with this ability to breathe life into the raw material. Since Samuel Constantin was a young boy has tried to create the objects of his imagination. He has always believed when you make an object you have created yourself it is possible to bequeath something to that object and that my thoughts can be passed on via my hands. Metal is one of those materials which more than others allow you to give shape to ideas. Connection with the elements is basic when it comes to my objects being born. The principle element is earth, from which metal originates. The natural world around us is a source of inspiration for new techniques and new objects to be shaped. The earth has, over the centuries, already sculptured the most beautiful works of art. The second element is fire which governs metal. Over time he has come to understand that fire is never my servant. You can think that you dominate it, but in reality you never have full control over it. So fire contributes to the creation of objects as if it were a co-artist. The concept of the elements, the link with the territory, the precious metals often obtained from recycled materials, techniques from the past and the search for new ones give the creation all the subtleties it requires. This is the essence of Samuel Constantini's creations. After years of bringing to life the ideas of others, it is now time also to realise our own, giving hands and minds the freedom to experiment and create. There is no production line: Every creation is made by hand and exclusively to order and this enhances the individuality of the pieces, which are all numbered to make each one unique.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia

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.
