TED MUEHLING
Vase/ Candlestick, 2014

In the selection and design of his pieces, Ted Muehling is guided by his sense of humility in the face of creation and by a particular sensitivity in regard to the aesthetic quality of natural products. 

The “theme with variations” is provided by plants with long, soft leaves, extending downwards with the elegance of a ballerina “en pointe”. A single leaf is shaped to form a slender vessel which serves as a vase or a candle holder. The leaves have been wrought from a single piece. The traces of the hammer blow correspond to Ted Muehling’s desire to emphasise the living, growing, unique quality of objects which have been produced by hand.
