Langley Bookend by Henry Wilson



Langley bookend by Henry Wilson Dimensions: 9.5 x 11 x 17 H cm Materials: Sand-cast Gunmetal bronze Langley Bookend is part modernist sculpture part functional shelf accessory. It is big and bold, comes in a single size and weighs a hefty 10kg. Each are made, finished and polished in Sydney, Australia in sand-cast Gunmetal Bronze. The weight and size can support the heftiest of editions. Langley Bookends are manufactured in small batches, slight variations will occur from piece to piece. Production marks may include slight pour ripples or surface pitting. They will arrive with a bright finish but will oxidize and darken over time to reveal a distinctive patina. Simply use a metal polish to restore a like-new finish. Henry Wilson's work combines a rational, democratic utility with an element of sculptural expression. There is a clear form and function in our products, but it’s important they also have feeling. We are interested in the awkward beauty that comes from something made by hand. We like to explore how imperfection can be introduced into an Industrial process, to make something at scale that retains a sense of individual charm. Permanent Collections and Exhibitions - Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Sydney, Australia - Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth, Australia - 'Sempering' XXI Triennale, MUDEC, 2016, Milan, Italy.
