  • Catalogue Essay

    Maarten Baas’s work in clay explores form-giving in industrial design, revealing, literally, the artist’s hand in this intimate process, today commonly concealed through the use of a computer. In making his remarkable ‘Clay’ table, Baas hand sculpted industrial clay on top of a metal armature. After, the tabletop surface was sliced in order to create a flat surface, and then the entire work was painted.
