PokBased in Vancouver, BC, Brent Comber creates stunningly simple yet contemporary pieces from wood found along the Pacifc Northwest coast. Douglas fir and western red cedar are just two of the wood types that can be found in his collection.
"Inspired by the paradox of ancient materials and contemporary forms, Brent Comber brings the rugged North West Coast into the urban setting. By remaining true to the spirit of this precious material, his pieces blur the boundaries between form and function. Using nature's rhythms and textures, Comber works with an honesty and respect for his medium to produce simple, yet bold statements of modern design."
Is it animal, vegetable or mineral? This piece was meant to have no direct reference to anything, (or everything?). This unique form invites people to impulsively run their hands along the curved surfaces and interpret it from many different angles. Clarity of form is anhanced by the Ebony stain.
