◄ Overview

James Shaw

Plastic Baroque Ceremonial Tableware Group: Candelabra

James Shaw’s series Plastic Baroque was first launched in 2014. It is created using an extrusion gun of Shaw’s own design, which squirts recycled thermoplastic into exuberantly sensual, colorful trails. It is an ingenious inversion: two of the most destructive inventions humans have ever come up with (guns and plastic) transformed into something generative, even playful. The trio of objects shown at Object & Thing allude specifically to forms of the baroque era, which might in the seventeenth century have been realized in hand-wrought silver.

Regular price $2,500
