You have probably heard of Derek Pearce. His extraordinary sculptures are renowned all over the world and he his pieces collected by celebrities from Hollywood artists, to rockstars and royalty. His unique Water Tables collection is an incredible example of practical and beautiful design. Animals such as hippos and ducks and even swimmers emerge and submerge through the glass shield that represents the water surface.
The effect is enchanting as the carved figures seem to float in the water, defying gravity and providing us with a soothing calming feeling. In the industrial and impersonal world that we live in, Pearce’s art and vision are a generous gift of comfort and rest.
The Water Tables collection was first shown in the late nineties, and since then has been exhibited throughout the U.S, Europe and Japan. The good thing is you can order most of the pieces..
