At First Glance, Paseos, a three-piece series of sculptural forms from ceramic artist and designer Claudia Issa, look as if they could wobble off into the ocean or be blown over by a stiff wind.
But this is an optical illusion and part of the intended effect.
For these solid, asynchronous forms (two landscape containers and a pedestal/seat) aren’t going anywhere—in fact, they’re made of bomb-proof precast concrete.
“Embodying an intriguing juxtaposition of balance, motion, and rotation,” Paseos function as a form of public amenity/art, the kind of art that promotes interaction, as the implication of motion catches the eye and encourages tactile exploration.
A brand of Landscape Forms, Kornegay Design creates outdoor art and amenities rooted in the aesthetic of nature. The company provides quality site-specific pieces for public spaces. Concrete is a preferred medium of founder Larry Kornegay—it’s the featured material of many of the company’s products.
