The River Collection by Greg Klassen 2014 01 650x433 “The River Collection” – Wood Furniture Embedded with Glass Rivers and Lakes by Greg Klassen

US-based artist Greg Klassen is an experienced furniture maker who has created a collection of hand-crafted tables with rivers “flowing” through them. After deciding the size of each table, the artist carves the outline of a gorge and fits light-blue glass on the top to create the illusion of a flowing river. His river collection features various designs, such as a coffee table, dining table, conference table and console. Klassen was inspired by the “exciting edges and vivid grains found in the trees sustainably taken from the banks of the Nooksack river that twists below his studio”.

International Origami Exhibition: Showcasing a Broad Spectrum of Possibilities

Surface to Structure: Folded Forms is an exhibition of origami artwork that brings together the work of 88 artists spanning five continents to the The Cooper Union in Manhattan. The 134 works in the show encapsulate a broad spectrum of origami’s possibilities, both artistic and scientific, and push the perceptions of this art form beyond its traditional boundaries.

Surface to Structure marks the 55th anniversary of the very first origami exhibition held in the United States, which was also housed within The Cooper Union. The historic works of that seminal exhibition served as a foundation for the contemporary origami of today, which has progressed into a far greater range and complexity of styles, techniques, and genres.
