About The Work
This vessel was turned green, carved, buffed and then waxed. The surface warps as it dries and has a very tactile, leather-like quality.
Brosi's work is typified by simple, reduced forms, turned from wet wood. After turning, the pieces are left to distort as they dry. Brosi works in distinct sculptural series, each communicating a concept or expressing an idea. He is driven by a desire to expose the honesty and imperfection in the material, often bleaching or ebonizing the wood so that all the viewer is left with are form and texture.
