I like the idea of inspiring from children drawings and building a table for children.
“Animal by Quentin de Coster is the result of a reflection on the formal and stereotypical perceptions related to the world of childhood. In an attempt to identify the formal universe in which children aged five years evolve, they were asked to draw tables and dogs. The design of animal was then created from drawings and constraints applicable to shape wood. In this way, the furniture takes on a simplified animal appearance, which beyond fun aspirations, allows it to exist without being used. The outgrowth of the shelf which represents head, gives the child a convenient storage within arm’s reach communicating directly with the work plan.”

“Ron Mueck (born 1958) is an Australian hyperrealist sculptor working in Great Britain.
Mueck’s early career was as a model maker and puppeteer for children’s television and films. He moved on to establish his own company in London, making photo-realistic props and animatronics for the advertising industry. Although highly detailed, these props were usually designed to be photographed from one specific angle hiding the mess of construction seen from the other side. Mueck increasingly wanted to produce realistic sculptures which looked perfect from all angles.
In 1996 Mueck transitioned to fine art, collaborating with his mother-in-law, Paula Rego, to produce small figures as part of a tableau she was showing at the Hayward Gallery. Rego introduced him to Charles Saatchi who was immediately impressed and started to collect and commission work. This led to the piece which made Mueck’s name, Dead Dad, being included in the Sensation show at the Royal Academy the following year. Dead Dad is a rather haunting silicone and mixed media sculpture of the corpse of Mueck’s father reduced to about two thirds of its natural scale. It is the only work of Mueck’s that uses his own hair for the finished product.
Mueck’s sculptures faithfully reproduce the minute detail of the human body, but play with scale to produce disconcertingly jarring visual images.
In 1999 Mueck was appointed as Associate Artist at the National Gallery, London. During this two year post he created the works Mother and Child, Pregnant Woman, Man in a Boat and Swaddled Baby. In 2002 his sculpture Pregnant Woman was purchased by the National Gallery of Australia for AU$800,000.”

I’m Zeynep Kınlı; a sophomore VACD (Visual Arts, Communication and Design) student from Sabanci University in Turkey. I’m not so talkative, which would not exactly be the best feature for a blogger I suppose. However, if you are curious and patient enough and willing to bear the trouble of witnessing my ineptitude; I believe we’ll get along pretty well. Ah, I think I’m getting used to this already. This much introduction must be just right – me groping around like the Cheshire cat appearing and disappearing with his weird smile.
Goodnight. Sleep tight.
