One, two, buckle my shoe.
Do you know how the song continues? Three, four, shut the door. Five, six, pick up sticks...
Pick Up Sticks is a game of physical and mental skill. A bundle of sticks are held in a loose bunch and release on a table top, falling in random disarray. It is the basis for Pick Up Planter, which marries an amorphic vessel with a seemingly random ring of rods. Although the appearance is random, the way the configuration is achieved is quite mathematical. I find the advanced molding and manufacturing of this organic piece to be intriguing.
Pick Up Planter measures dia20x16"h and is made from artist-grade resin. Finished in a glossy black lacquer with orange dowels. Other finishes can be custom ordered. Will be produced and distributed by award-winning US-based company Phillips Collection. Pricing and availability available upon request.
