Poly is a series of castings of a single shape that when adjusted creates an entirely new object. This has been a collaboration in the truest sense of the word. Poly is a direct result of Egg and Hangar's desires to create small, beautiful, yet functional objects. Masters cast in bronze and copies in plaster allow for a range of items. Even the fabrication of the objects has been a collaboration - Hangar braised the initial bronze masters, from which Egg created molds and plaster castings. 8” x 7.5” x 5.5” $800 - $200

In collaboration with Chelsea Green and James Minola of Grain, the emotions are brought to life through a series of limited edition, custom designed vodkas that present new combinations of L.O.V.E ingredients.

Fathom was created as a beautiful reminder of how quickly we forget about events of devastation. When one passes in front of the object, the top part of your body is reflected in a natural way, but the bottom half of the mirror creates a deep refraction and convincingly makes you appear as if you are neck deep in water. 24”x24” Silver and blue mirrored acrylic.
