David Wiseman works in a variety of mediums including wood, porcelain, crystal, and bronze, and is inspired by the subtleties in nature, like the texture of bark or the pattern of moss growing on a rock. His designs, which can be found on a tabletop, wrapped around a fireplace, or dangling from the ceiling, highlight these organic details, and bring a romantic, Sleeping Beauty-esque woodland quality indoors. His bronze branches, which sprout porcelain blossoms, are kindred spirits of midcentury bronze wall sculptures, but have a timeless sophistication that supersedes them. His deer head-shaped hat hangers bear the childlike playfulness of Rudolph, white still maintaining a distinct maturity. To continue your introduction and see some of his work, read more.
It's no wonder New York magazine said he'd be "Famous by 2010" — the work of the 2003 RISD grad suggests he's a man wise beyond his years. At the young age of 26, his work has already been acquired by notable collections, has appeared in numerous publications, and most recently, been selected for the Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Smithsonian Institution.
