Description From thousands of simple beech rods patiently cut, sanded and arranged one by one, Pia Maria Raeder creates refined functional sculptures that evoke biomorphic forms. According to Pia Maria’s own words: “With my work, I try to create pieces which are as vibrant, unique and surprising as nature". Each work in the collection ‘Sea Anemones’ is handmade. More than 400 hours of work and 29,000 beech rods are necessary to produce the ‘Sea Anemones Family', made of three tables completed by two sculptures. The tables include varnished brushed brass tops. The bases of the five pieces are in cement. Three additional glass tops are provided with the set.

Dimensions of the five pieces are as follows:
H 53 x L 75 x P 60 cm / H 21 x W 29.5 x D 23.5 inches

“In my work with beech rods, I love the challenge of overcoming the contradictions in the material as I play with it, says the artist. Natural beech rods are straight, but combined at different heights, these rods take on a new form resembling a wave with shadowy reflections. A wooden rod, that is rigid in itself, becomes soft and rounded once sanded. The application of lacquer on the rods arranged in large numbers transforms the wood and underlines its movements.”

Emancipated from its limits, the wood is offered a newfound freedom. The breath of nature seems to animate these intriguing pieces of furniture in which function and poetry fuse. Their magic presence is like the echo of nature’s murmur while their organic waves sketch the movement of life. The ‘Sea Anemone’ collection includes side and coffee tables, wall mirrors, a freestanding mirror, an elegant, enveloping armchair and two floor lamps. Each piece can be created to go outdoors using fiberglass rods that, thanks to the artist’s talent, substitute the original wood rods while preserving the same biomorphic waves.
