All furniture pieces are handcrafted of solid wood and built to last for a long time. Occasionaly the studio may have stock of an item but they are usually made to order so please contact the studio for lead time and delivery quote. If you require a special size and/or finish of an existing item or are interested in a custom furniture piece, the studio would be happy to discuss your needs.

The name Moving Mountains is both an allusion and tribute to the Hawaiian archipelago and its imperceptible movement northwestward. In fact, all mountains are moving on this Earth but the Hawaiian Islands are possibly the most explicit example of this geological phenomena. Though born and raised in Hawaii, Syrette Lew managed to find her way to yet another island 5000 miles away named and recognized for its “length”. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

ADAM LUPTON

Canadian artist Adam Lupton‘s gaze explores psychological and sociological struggles in modern society. Painting in oil, blurring lines between realism and expressionism helps Lupton probe the internal and external dialogue faced in his multi-directional narratives. His recent work pits moments of choice against the visualization of their outcomes: temporal planes coexisting on a singular surface. With the notion of quantum mechanics having every possible outcome to a situation realized in splintered universes, he paints figures with varied levels of connection to reality.

EL TRIO by Sebastián Lara + Roberto Sedano

Esta serie de floreros fabricados en cerámica esmaltada, están inspirados en los tradicionales tríos de música mexicana. Su estética refleja la esencia, aspecto y personalidad de cada uno de los integrantes de alguna de esta agrupaciones. Donde encontramos al simpático gordito, seguido del vocalista fortachón líder de la banda y en la retaguardia al tímido y delgado guitarrista. Como una abstracción de la vestimenta de estas agrupaciones que se conforma de saco y corbatín. Las piezas cerámicas presentan un corte distintivo en la parte frontal.

CONFLUENCE

Confluence is a small wooden tea tray that serves up to 6 persons. It is carved out of Birch plywood, creating a beautiful landscape like form. It has been processed on both sides such that a thin layer of undulating form remains. The layers of the ply accentuates the undulating form through their alternating dark and light seams. A large central reservoir is created by the landscape. Excess tea will naturally flow towards the reservoir and form a miniature lake. As the tea gathers, the level gradually rises just like a lake does when it rains.
