Metamorphosis Shelf by Sebastian Errazuriz

Metamorphosis-Shelf-Errazuriz

Metamorphosis is hand-carved, following organic designs of crawling ivy. An attempt by the artist, Sebastian Errazuriz, to recreate the great old ivy that grew on his childhood home. As a child, Errazuriz would use the thick branches that ran next to the wall as a natural shelf to store his garden toys. The final piece of this project was sculpted in Italy in a long tedious process, balancing aesthetics with structure, stability, and the natural functionality of a bookshelf.
