Doug Johnston Bronze Vessels
We are thrilled to introduce a limited edition of bronze vessels in collaboration with the inimitable Doug Johnston. Longtime fans of Doug's work, we put our heads together to find a way that we could work together on a special project. Working closely with Chicago foundry West Supply, we landed on the direct burnout technique, in which a collection of Doug's signature rope vessels would be cast in bronze. In this process, each piece was coated in a ceramic slurry and heated to over 1500 degrees to burn away the original cotton pieces, creating one-of-a-kind molds that allowed them to be transformed into an entirely different medium. The exceptional result is a series of five unique bronze works, with Doug's singular style displayed in a striking new way.
This limited edition of 5 unique pieces is available exclusively through Patrick Parrish Gallery.
