                                While we&#8217;ve previously featured the work of <a href="http://jeffmartinjoinery.ca/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Jeff Martin Joinery</a>, we&#8217;ve only seen his beautiful wooden furniture pieces. Now, the designer is exploring new mediums using scrap materials as inspiration in a series called <a href="http://jeffmartinjoinery.ca/EXCAVATED-VESSELS"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Excavated Vessels</a>. The blown glass vessels are made using remnants from their cork casting processes used in the production of their furniture and mirrors.
Glass is blown into the cork molds filling the negative space as it expands and as the molds are removed, oxygen seeps in between the materials causing the surface of the cork to catch fire, thereby destroying the mold in the process. The finished piece isn’t revealed until it’s excavated from the cork so they never know what they’re going to get. The one-of-a-kind results resemble the textures found on mountain, glaciers, rocks, and glacier pools as if they were “hurled into outer space.”

Zoë Pawlak x Jeff Martin Credenzas

Zoë Pawlak x Jeff Martin Credenzas Artist Zoë Pawlak and Jeff Martin of Jeff Martin Joinery, who we’ve featured at Westedge 2014, have launched a collection of artistic, hand-painted credenzas. ZoëPawlak-JeffMartin-Credenza-5 The classic credenza has a powder coated steel base, with a streamlined minimalist form. The front is where the credenza gets a unique spin. Zoe’s painting decorates the front, giving a sharp contrast between clean lines and a rich, lacquer coated front. ZoëPawlak-JeffMartin-Credenza-1 ZoëPawlak-JeffMartin-Credenza-3 ZoëPawlak-JeffMartin-Credenza-4 They debuted a first glimpse of their credenza at ICFF 2015.
