Inspired by natural bone forms, rural technology, and geometric structure, sculptor Sam Spiczka has produced a distinctive body of work that is both modern and intensely primal, public yet deeply personal. Using industrial fabrication techniques, he crafts captivating physical objects which exist simultaneously in a forgotten past and an imagined future. Welcome to his world.
And introducing his new series of functional artworks, Dark Age Design. People may ask, “Why Dark Age Design? Didn’t we leave the Dark Ages behind in our quest for progress?” However, life itself is cyclical, with periods of dark and light, death and rebirth. Dark Age Design celebrates this continuity and brings practical yet beautiful forms back into our daily lives. By crafting functional art with reclaimed and repurposed natural materials, Dark Age Design honors the journey.
