In stock (1000 items available)
Alma Allen and J.B. Blunk: In Conversation presents an encounter between two California-based artists who never met but whose work shares a deep affinity in material and sensibility: contemporary sculptor and designer Alma Allen (born 1970) and J.B. Blunk (1926-2002), whose work encompassed ceramics, furniture and sculpture in redwood and cypress.Both Blunk and Allen designed their own homes and studios, as well as many of the furnishings and objects in them.The work of both artists blurs the line between design and sculpture, with both men creating evocative organic work from natural materials, inspired by the nature outside of their remote studios. The first publication on both of these artists' work, "Alma Allen and J.B. Blunk: In Conversation" stages an impossible meeting between two kindred spirits, grounded in a shared exploration of the materials, processes and sites of art making.
