'ROCK COLLECTION'

MILES GERTLER.

reaching out TO US from TORONTO, CANADA.


THE ROCK COLLECTION CONSISTS OF A SERIES OF TABLETOP OBJECTS THAT ARE 'UNBURDENED BY THE EXPECTATION OF FUNCTION'. GERTLER’S OBJECTIVE BEHIND DESIGNING THIS COLLECTION WAS TO CREATE AESTHETICALLY PLEASING DECORATIVE PARTS THAT CAN STAND ALONE, OR BECOME A WHOLE AND STILL STAY COHESIVE.

THE COLLECTION HOSTS TABLETOP LUMINARIES, INSTANT HEIRLOOM PIECES, AND TOTEMIC PARTS FOR INTERIOR SCENARIOS. ALL OBJECTS ARE COOKED RESIN-CASTS, THAT CONTAIN A VARIETY OF COLORS, which makes EACH PIECE UNIQUE.
