Maarten Baas: Clay Table With Drawer

120406_0152

There is something about Maarten Baas’s Clay series that reminds me of Lousie Bourgois’s spider sculptures. Each of them is unique as they are individually modeled in synthetic clay over a metal armature before being varnished. My favourite is this small red side table with a drawer. The tabletop with all it’s bumps from the fingers that moulded it, is like a little body with a drawer face. It’s spindly legs could scuttle of in the night time to fetch you a fresher glass of water. This table would make a lovely pet.120406_0153-detail
