The RBS Series Vessels are created using solid cast blocks of resin-bonded sand (RBS) which is typically a byproduct of the metal casting industry. The material is hand sculpted and selectively soaked with a coating of color resin that penetrates into the outer layer. Once cured, the object is excavated from the uncured sand block leaving the uniquely textured hardened shell.
The RBS Series utilizes multiple variations of the experimental process to create vessels, furniture, lighting and sculpture inspired by coral, cactus, rock formations and other natural forms.
All RBS Series pieces are hand created by the designer himself and each is one of a kind. All are signed and dated. Steven can produce similar pieces at the same over-all dimensions but obviously the details are unique. This also means that he can work at custom scale, color etc.PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE
