BALTIC is one of my most personal designs – a purely artistic endeavour to capture an important period of my life. Working for five years in Copenhagen, I often visited the shoreline and was always captured by the movement of Øresund, a strait of water between Denmark and Sweden. The sea was often quite choppy and always appeared broody, dark, stormy, and mysterious.
Creating a hand carving technique to scallop the surface, I created an undulating and continuous pattern of deep textural grooves rolling from one edge to another. BALTIC is a model in a series called “Black Light” in tribute to the French artist, Pierre Soulages. Soulages was known as “the painter of black”, who stated “My instrument is not black, but the light reflected from the black”.
The design is available as a one-of-a-kind hand-carved wood door in custom finishes. It is also available in 4’ x 8’ wall panels cast in light engineered concrete (GFRC). Custom colours including metallic finishes such as bronze, gold, silver etc. to offer a hammered, sculptural look to the wall panels.
Available as an Interior Door, Exterior Door, Sliding Door and Interior Wall Panel.
