Impossibly small, detailed and engineered. Impossibly beautiful African blackwood – integrated sap and heartwood. Two bodies of work that fit in the protected palm of your hand. Shock and awe. Instant collections.
Father Hans Weissflog and only son, Jakob Weissflog, share a shop and the mastery of their craft. Over twenty-five years, Hans has created a complex menagerie of turned, layered and pierced boxes. Many roll and delight the viewer! Jakob grew up observing and practicing, then trained under Hans and others. Now in his twenties, his architectonic works hover, suspend and complement with perfect geometry.
