Pick Up Planter

2011
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.
