Woven Neon

Woven Neon

Woven Neon is a private commission made in collaboration with Suzanne Tick, Mary Wallis and Richard Roepnack. This artist’s proof for this piece became an adaptive reuse project exhibited at Venice Design 2019. This piece symbolizes movement, technology, and connectivity. All aspects can be recycled, reconfigured, and resized.

 

Entangled Light

Mary Wallis, a lighting designer who had worked in neon, was a perfect pairing for a Wallpaper Magazine show in Salone de Mobile in 2014.

Process: Create a paper mock up to show how the Neon needed to bend and how they would fit into one another.  We used this grid paper as a template. Select the subtle shades of white neon, there are many.  Heat and bend the neon to match the mock up and fit within the  grid formula.  Make extras in case of breakage. Wiring and mounting was Marys mastery. The back of the piece was as beautiful as the face.
