Palo Alto Residence


Porcelain & Stainless Steel

108” L X 48” W

After seeing our work in the lobby of the Palomar Hotel in San Diego, the owner of this home in Palo Alto approached us to create a personal installation.

With total creative freedom, we looked to nature for inspiration and found it in the soft curves and ephemeral character of wild spores.

We began by crafting 350 porcelain orbs. Then, we arranged them in an intentionally random fashion.

The cumulative effect of the imperfect, round shapes and their unique placement served to offset the strong geometric lines of the home, creating a fascinating study in contrast.

And the client was so pleased with the results she forgave us for knocking holes in her wall.
