beautiful brass

Many of you might know Canadian designer Martha Sturdy. She's been creating bold, sculptural pieces since 1978. Her work is paired down and minimal and illustrates a great appreciation for material and proportion. If you have ever visited the rugged West Coast of Canada than you will understand her work. I have personally always lusted after her resin pieces and hope one day that one of her works will find it's way into my home. Her latest collection called Rivet is made from individually crafted brass accent pieces in limited editions. They are in a word - stunning.

In signature Sturdy style, this collection presents bowls, and chargers in epic proportions with bowls 10” tall and chargers up to 48” in diameter.

The piece de resistance is a 36” circular coffee table carefully executed with riveted seams and castors and is generously proportioned to appropriately demonstrate the intricate details of the finish. The patina is ever evolving.
