Lumenoria II - Dining Table
Over the course of the last three years Joseph Walsh and his team have been expanding the Studio’s design language in new materials. This lengthy exploratory process, demanding proximity to a range of materials and painstaking work to understand and investigate their properties and potentials, is much informed by the way Joseph Walsh has worked with wood over the last 15 years.
"In the Lumenoria series I introduce resin to my palette of materials. These works are handcast resin surfaces over free-form wood sculptural bases. The resin is slowly handcast, allowing the liquid resin to respond to the wood form beneath, and the result is the creation of this sinuous, sensuous, undulating, organic form.
Lumenoria II, a large scale cast resin and Ash wood dining table, is the second piece realized following a three-year long exploratory process; a journey my studio team and I took to understand, investigate and challenge the properties and potentials of the material.
This new work continues to honour and reflect my guiding principle of allowing a piece to evolve and grow through the creation process rather than insist on a form or structure and results I believe, in truly innovative and provocative work."
