Description/

Formed from recycled scrap iron, Bradley L. Bower’s Cala planter opposes ideas of vessels as standing always for verticality. Inspired by the Calabash gourd plant, whose curvaceous vessel like form is hollowed out to become objects as diverse as drums, puppets and wine bottles across West Africa, Cala’s trio of vessels sag and huddle into one another, turning the upright flower pot into a site of softness to be viewed in the round, rather than prescriptively by ideas of cardinal direction.

designer

Bradley L. Bowers explores the dynamic overlap between rapid-prototyping and artisanal craftsmanship. The studio uses contemporary digital-modeling tools in unison with traditional craft techniques to achieve objects and forms that redefine the norms. After earning honors and advanced degrees from the Savannah College of Art and Design, the Atlanta native founded his studio to bring the worlds of art and design together. He creates site-specific new media art installations, pop-up experiences, and bespoke pieces for fashion brands, art institutions, and private clients. As well as exhibiting work in Miami, New York, New Orleans, Atlanta, and Milan, his work is in a variety of permanent collections.
