Splash Series 2014

A sculpture series showing a splash in a cup of coffee. The liquid is carved out of wood and placed in a coffee cup. The object falling into the liquid is either a stainless steel ball or a coffee bean carved out of wood.

Splash Series (2014)

The inspiration for this series came out of my interest in portraying two things, the effect of a force applied by one object on another, and giving static objects a sense of motion. A splash is particularly interesting because it is explosive, fast and fleeting. This adds the element of time to the challenge. I am looking to create the sense that this really is just a split second moment in a rapidly evolving interaction.

I have used 1 1/2" stainless steel balls and an over sized coffee bean carved out of cherry wood as the falling objects. The liquid is carved out of maple or cherry wood.

Have a special cup in mind? I am more than happy to do custom work so feel free to contact me for more information.

Like a snowflake, no two splashes are the same.
