Timeless Modern Design at CMSPIEWAK


Hello All :)

So I’m excited to share a bit about my new design studio CMSPIEWAK. It’s the evolution and inspiration of nearly 20 years of sculpture, furniture and object design that began with the creation of the “Cardboard Chair” during my first semester of Architecture School and continued soon after with the design of “Louise’s Table” at my first Architecture firm (…I’ll expand on both stories soon via the studio’s new blog: The CMSPIEWAK Design Journal).

The WHY of why this is finally coming to life now is one part desire, one part timing and one part failure. Actually, it’s more like 100 parts desire but the incomplete (failed) ending to my Historic Design/Build Project was a profoundly affecting motivator that has pivotally elevated my sculpture beyond the sketchbooks. However, after nearly 20 years sketching and designing, it was surprisingly difficult to actually choose a piece to begin with as I have so many unique chairs, tables, vases and design objects, aching to be brought to life.

The last 7-8 years I’ve been particularly fascinated with sculptural vases, especially my “Cup & Clasp” style vases, so that’s where I finally chose to begin! Of course I had an equally difficult time selecting a specific incarnation of vase to begin with but inspired by a last minute discovery of Dwell Magazine’s 1st annual Live/Work design contest, I promptly selected: “The Alleato Vase” {“…a modern design classic”} from among my design favorites and submitted it for entry in the contest. Regrettably, with so little time to refine the 3d model prior to the contest deadline, the renderings submitted (and currently displayed via links in this post) did not reflect the final design elegance & refinement envisioned for this vase but it was one step closer to reality!

Not only are my Sculpture & Vases on the cusp of their creative birth but the manifestation of the entire studio, workflow and creative heritage are just beginning to unfold; Which of course means nothing is even close to complete, refined or ready to introduce to you! Nonetheless, this is my personal blog NOT a press release, so here you have it, in its rough, unfinished, far from functional but infinitely compelling (for me), soon to be in a fine art gallery (near you) form!

If you’re inspired by new beginnings, then please help ours blossom by adding, sharing, liking, and following us online at: CMSPIEWAK.comFacebook | Twitter | Google+ | YouTube | and more!

Infinite gratitude for all for your support!
